The president of the Cabo Verde Women’s Organization (OMCV) provided this information in an interview with Inforpress, saying that on September 9 and 10 the direction and delegates of the organization will be gathered in the City of Praia for the consideration and discussion of the activities report and OMCV’s accounts and for the election of the new governing bodies.
