Members of the new Angolan government sworn in Saturday in Luanda promised to fight corruption and nepotism.

The commitment consists of the term of office signed by the new executive members in the presence of the newly-inaugurated president.

The newly appointed ministers and provincial governors also pledged to refrain from practices that harm the public interest, according to the term of office read by Jose Filipe, the director of the ceremonial of president.

On the other hand, a statement released Friday by the opposition coalition CASA-CE accused the Angolan president of having “once again deceived” the people with the newly appointed government.

CASA-CE considered the new executive a “continuation of the state apparatus of the same party, with the same people, the same practices and with the same blemish that, over the decades, led to the dilapidation of the country due to corruption and other illicit acts.”

With 16 seats in the Parliament, the CASA-CE was the third most voted party in the August 23 general elections won by the ruling People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) with qualified majority with 150 MPs. Enditem
