 Gathered in an extraordinary General Assembly, at the headquarters of the club, in the capital of the country, the associative mass was unanimous about the return to the previous logo, whose characteristics fit better to the history of the club.

As for the conclave, guided by the Vice-President of the General Assembly, Paulino Jerónimo, the management report and the 2019 financial year were approved, as well as the electoral regulations.

It was decided that 13 July will be reserved for the submission of the list or lists competing for the mandate of 2020/2024, while the election will be held on the 18th of the same month.

In statements to the press, Paulino Jerónimo said that the prospect is to have a Petro turned to business "because, definitely, we can not continue to depend on a sponsor, Sonangol.
