Government Forms Bi-Partisan Committee to Address Institutional Regulations

Obiang promotes constitutional reform through new committee

President Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea has formed a committee of 30 officials to work on institutional regulations and implement internal projects provided by the Constitutional Reform.

The committee includes a representative from each of the 13 officially recognized political parties; meaning 12 of them are members of the opposition.

Buenaventura Mosuy, General Coordinator of the Social Democratic Coalition Party, stated that the committee will spend seven days in Mongomo, Obiang’s home district, working on the adaptation process for internal projects such as the Senate, Ombudsman, Court of Auditors and the Council of the Republic.

The Constitutional Reform was officially approved in November 2011 after receiving a 97.7 percent approval rate from the Guinean population.
