Municipality Day: “Brava” brand presented to the public through Renda Brava products Nova Sintra, Jun 24 (Inforpress) – The first collection by Renda Brava products project, which represents the Brava brand, was presented to the citizens of Brava, in an exhibition organized by CNAD and the City Hall, in Nova Sintra. At the inauguration, the director of the National Center for Art, Crafts and Design (CNAD), Irlando Ferreira, showed that the exhibition and the brand represent the achievement of a “very great” challenge, because working from São Vicente to Brava, through digital means, “is completely different” than when working in person. As he pointed out, since 2018, when the project began, they were already aware that it would be a challenge, but the motivation of the creatives, both designers and the hand-embroidered made by women, made the CNAD and everyone involved bet everything was possible so that the project could get to what it is today. According to this official, the hand-embroidered made by women in Brava no longer exists for several years, and the CNAD wanted with the project to bring hand-embroidered made by women that had identity and symbology with this island, explaining the care the team had in carrying out the work.

Law proposal that regulates the Special Administrative Statute for the Capital of the Country was voted down in Parliament

Praia, Jul 13 (Inforpress) – The draft law that regulates the Special Administrative Statute of the Capital of Cabo Verde was voted down in Parliament, having received votes against and in favor from both opposition MPs and those who support the Government.

The bill had 39 votes in general, 35 from the Movement for Democracy (MpD, ruling party) and four from the African Independence Party of Cabo Verde (PAICV, opposition party), which also voted 21 abstentions.

Six MPs voted against the proposal, three from the Independent and Democratic Cabo Verdean Union (UCID, opposition party), two from the PAICV and one from the MpD. With these voting numbers, the proposal was rejected because there was no absolute majority for its approval.

In their explanation of vote, the MpD parliamentary leader, Joana Rosa, who rejoiced with some votes in favor from the PAICV’s MPs, stated that some MPs from this party have always failed the country’s major reforms. According to her, the Government’s policy it is “integrating and decentralizing”, pointing out that from Santo Antão to Brava the municipalities have more resources and more development, despite three years of drought.
