Quotes

"We don't accept any institution of the Portuguese colonialists. We are not interested in the preservation of any of the structures of the colonial state. It is our opinion that it is necessary to totally destroy, to break, to reduce to ash all aspects of the colonial state in our country in order to make everything possible for our people."
"The chronic instability in which our country finds itself is not the cause of our problems" Vaz has said, blaming instead "the extreme poverty... which we will all fight."
..." Foucher argues that: "the best defence against another coup is a civilian regime that maintains its legitimacy through policy outcomes and good governance."
"The numbers are positive. Taking into account the voter turnout in the various polling stations, participation would exceed 70 percent" the election commission's president, Augusto Mendes, told reporters
