André Mendes de Carvalho promises to rebuild CASA-CE

Luanda, ANGOLA, February 27 - Angolan politician André Mendes de Carvalho, one of the vice presidents of CASA-CE, said on Wednesday he was ready to "put the coalition on the rails" after discharging leader Abel Chivukuvuku.,

The leaders of the political parties that are part of Angola's Broad Convergence of Salvation of Angola - Electoral Coalition (CASA-CE) decided Tuesday to remove its president Abel Chivukuku for alleged "breach of trust" and was replaced by André Mendes de Carvalho.


The decision comes as a result of deliberations by the coalition parties, after several meetings, in which they decided to nominate André Mendes de Carvalho, the president of CASA-CE, as the leader of the coalition's parliamentary seat.


Speaking to Angop, the politician said that he saw no illegality to take over the leadership of the coalition, for whom the coexistence between Abel Chivikuvuki and the leaders of the political parties that were members of CASA-CE was no longer good.


Due to the tension that was created, he said that he had to find a way to save the coalition.


He recalled Abel Chivukuvuku being given the opportunity to resign, but he did not do so, "then CASA-SE parties decided to move him away from the leadership of the coalition.


He informed that after his inauguration, scheduled for next Monday, he will have the mission to make CASA-CE to work again, that is, fto put the coalition on the rails, taking into account the local elections of 2020.


"Our motto is to maintain unity, cohesion and for the functioning of the coalition again," he said, stating that no independent member was expelled from CASA-CE.


He also said that the ex-leader of the coalition was informed about this deliberation taken by the parties that integrate CASA-CE.


CASA-CE is an electoral coalition idealized in 2012 by Abel Chivikuvuku, which, in addition to six parties, is also composed of a group of politicians without a party, among them André Mendes de Carvalho and Abel Chivukuvuku, who led until recently the coalition.


Recently, the Constitutional Court (TC) ruled that "independents politicians” cannot be part of CASA-CE, because this is a coalition of parties, not individualities. "
