Praia, Feb 12 (Inforpress) – The President of the Republic Thursday assessed “positively” the Ombudsman performance, after a courtesy visit in which he analyzed with the Ombudsman issues affecting the institution and receives information on actions in progress for the sake of improvements.
“I have a very positive assessment of the Ombudsman’s action, even though it is recent and does not have many means, but it has been doing constructive and positive work, despite being an uncomfortable institution,” said Jorge Carlos Fonseca, in statements to the press, after the meeting he had with the Ombudsman and his work team.
According to the President of the Republic, the Ombudsman, as an institution helps to contribute to the consolidation of the rule of law and strengthen the culture of democracy, “is uncomfortable for many services and people” because it is the institution that “moves and touches on issues ”sometimes“ are not to the liking of institutions and politicians ”.
The head of the State further said that it is for this reason the Ombudsman exists, that is, to act where there are “illegitimate failures and dissatisfactions” in the realization of citizens’ rights.
