Praia, Sep 6 (Inforpress) – The candidate for the 2021 Presidential Elections, Carlos Veiga, promised to defend democracy and keep alive the Constitution he helped write by devoting rights, freedoms and guarantees to Cabo Verdeans.
Carlos Veiga, who was the first Head of Government chosen in free and multi-party elections in Cabo Verde, held on January 13, 1991, made these statements during his speech at the public presentation ceremony of his candidacy for President of the Republic in October 17.
In his speech, the candidate recalled that Cabo Verdeans are linked by their history, so he stressed, wherever the people of the islands are, it takes their culture, their mother tongue, their music and, above all, the pride of being Cabo Verdean.
“Our Cabo-Verdianity has been a profound mark that identifies us as a people and nation. We are more than a people living within a territory, we are a Nation living within its people,” stressing that together “we are one people without divisions and greater than any border.”
