President Guebuza urges mass turnout for elections

All Mozambican voters, regardless of the parties they support, and even those who say they are not interested in politics, should flock to the polling stations on 28 October, to choose the country’s leaders for the next five years, declared President Armando Guebuza on 20 September.

Speaking at a campaign rally in Mecanhelas, in the northern province of Niassa, President Guebuza stressed that the choice of a president and of the members of a new parliament, should be a matter not for a minority but for all Mozambican of voting age. Elections, he stressed, are a special moment in the life of the nation, when the people have the right to choose the best of their fellow-countrymen and entrust the running of the state to them.

He noted that the outgoing parliament contains one group “that did everything it could to vote against the laws submitted by the government for approval” (a reference to the parliamentary group of the opposition Renamo-Electoral Union coalition).

That the ruling Frelimo Party held a parliamentary majority was important, he stressed, since it meant that Frelimo could pass the laws itself “which the others wanted to block and thus paralyse the country”.

This obstructionist attitude in parliament, he added, meant that the opposition deputies were not interested in the country’s development. All those who want to see the country progress, and to continue eradicating poverty, should vote for himself and for Frelimo, since over the past half century Frelimo has shown that it is the only force fighting for development and for improved living standards of the Mozambican people.

Even those who are not Frelimo supporters, or who say they “don’t like politics”, should vote for Frelimo, he urged, because Frelimo’s achievements have benefited all Mozambicans, regardless of their political affiliation.
