In a press release from the Angolan Foreign Affairs Ministry (MIREX), reached ANGOP last Wednesday, the Angolan Government expressed its availability to join all those who oppose the alteration of Constitutional Order in Guinea-Bissau.

“Angolan governments learnt, with great surprise, of the latest  political development in Guinea Bissau, with stress to the resignation, under Decree of the President José Mário Vaz, of the Constitutional Government emerged from the last legislative Elections and led by Prime Minister Aristides Gomes,” the note reads out.

President José Mário Vaz dismissed the government of Prime Minister Aristides Gomes last Monday, alleging that the situation in the country described as “a serious political crisis and disrupt the normal functioning of the institutions”, before the already delayed presidential election scheduled for 24 November.

According to the press release, this fact is a step backward in the normalisation of the country's political life which can only be achieved by the end of electoral cycle.
