Sokol2017 move forward with proposal for local autonomy of São Vicente and calls for dialogue with the Sao Vicente citizens

Mindelo, Jul 6  (Inforpress) – Sokols2017 on Monday launched a proposal for the creation of a Special Political Administrative Statute, with “respect for the Constitution and uniqueness of the country”, with the City Hall and the Municipal Assembly becoming, respectively, a government and regional parliament.

The proposal was announced by the leader of the civic movement, Salvador Mascarenhas, at a conference in Mindelo, to mark the passage of the 46th anniversary of National Independence, which is celebrated today, and whose focus was the centralism and autonomy of the islands.

According to the same source, the proposal would avoid doubling expenses and creating conflicts of power and intra-regional competence, not least because, being São Vicente an island/ city, with a single City Council, the population is “engaged in this change”, so it asks the Government to dialogue with the Sao Vicente in search of a solution.

In this proposal of Sokols2017, according to Salvador Mascarenhas, the central Government would be represented by a representative of the Republic, who would oversee the constitutionality of regional laws, representative of sovereignty and special representative of the President of the Republic, who would name and exonerate him, listening to the Government of the Republic.
