North Santiago PAICV Regional Political Commission elections coming up Sunday 31 Julho 2009

The governing PAICV’s North Santiago Regional Political Commission will be holding direct elections to elect its new leader this Sunday. José Maria Veiga, a member of the party’s National Council and the head of its External Relations department, is the consensual candidate for the leadership of the North Santiago Regional Political Commission, and will be aided by two vice-presidents: Orlando Sanches and Victor Baessa, the mayors of the municipalities of Santa Cruz and São Lourenço dos Órgãos, respectively. Picos mayor João Baptista Pereira, however, contrary to the party’s hopes, will not be participating in the directorship.

Between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm, PAICV members from the northern region of the island of Santiago will elect the president, vice-presidents and representatives for their Regional Political Commission. A total of 6,151 party members are registered to vote in the election.

José Maria Veiga, who is also Cape Verde’s Minister of the Environment, Rural Development and Marine Resources, is the sole candidate for the Commission presidency.

Regional Assembly to be elected August 9

However, the PAICV militants in North Santiago will only elect their deliberative officers on August 9. Veiga guarantees that the offices will be distributed “in a balanced fashion” among the various different municipal party structures. Veiga also affirmed that, given João Baptista Pereira’s refusal to join the ticket for the Regional Political Commission, another PAICV member from the municipality of which Pereira is mayor, São Salvador do Mundo, will take on the presidency of the Regional Assembly.

Legislator and former Justice Minister José Manuel Andrade will preside over the Regional Political Commission’s Jurisdiction and Regional Oversight Council.
