Lusa - Business News - Cabo Verde: PM dares opposition to report any 'suspicions' to authorities




Praia, Nov.23,2022(Lusa) - The prime minister of Cabo Verde, Ulisses Correia e Silva, criticised the opposition in parliament on Wednesday for its constant "suspicions, insinuations, defamations and accusations" against the government, challenging them to report any illicit practices to the courts.
"It is time to abandon the politics of suspicion. In this country, there are institutions. Use the judicial institutions if you have data or information that indicate the practice of crimes of infidelity, embezzlement, illicit participation in business, corruption or others typified by law," said Ulisses Correia e Silv, during the monthly debate in parliament, with the theme "Transparency as a development factor," scheduled by the African Party for the Independence of Cabo Verde (PAICV, opposition since 2016).
"Cabo Verdeans gave us another mandate [in 2021] because they did not believe your talk. But you continue with this slander, and you already know what that leads to," the prime minister and leader of the Movement for Democracy (MpD, in power since 2016) also said.
Government transparency, in the public administration or in the processes of privatisation and concession of companies and public services by the current government, has been recurrently called to parliament by the PAICV, with the prime minister criticising the opposition: "Once again, we are here to reaffirm that the various attempts, since 2016, to launch suspicions, insinuations, defamations and political accusations about the government to create perceptions of lack of transparency and corruption, have not succeeded and will not succeed. There is a thesis and a strategy built and repeated systematically to tarnish the government's honorability. It has not succeeded, and it will not succeed", he said.
In this debate, PAICV parliamentary leader, João Baptista Pereira, accused the government of "systematic non-compliance" in terms of transparency over the last seven years and said that Ulisses Correia e Silva "did not fulfil" the "commitment he made to the people", to "make an effective and immediate separation between the party and the state".
"He has implemented a recruitment system based exclusively on criteria of political affinity, cronyism and cronyism, completely capturing Cape Verde's public administration," he said, adding that he has also failed to fulfil "his promise to increase the efficiency and transparency of the state, particularly by improving legislation and fighting corruption.
The party leader said that "on the contrary, the government insists on managing the country's strategic resources and interests with total secrecy, as if it were a strictly private business," alluding to the ongoing privatisation programme.
"It becomes imperative and unpostponable that the government radically changes its approach to transferring state assets to the private sector. We believe that the privatisation of the main economic infrastructures (...) should be conducted with total transparency and responsibility, preferably through public tender, which without a shadow of a doubt, is the procedure that best protects the public interest and allows for scrutiny by society, particularly when dealing with concessions of scandalous duration, such as that of the airports [40 years, attributed to the Vinci group] which, if badly negotiated, may compromise the interests of several generations to come", he also said.
João Baptista Pereira stressed that it is "imperative and pressing" that the public administration "is truly placed at the service of development and not at the service of a political party".
João Santos Luís, president and deputy of the Independent and Democratic Capeverdean Union (UCID), asked for "greater transparency and coherence" in government policies and criticised the "constant withholding of information" and the "unclear way in which some data, namely numbers" in documents provided by the executive.
Ulisses Correia e Silva stressed that Cabo Verde "is internationally recognised for its good governance and low reputational risks associated with corruption" African leader in the ranking of political and civic freedoms, first in Africa in the ranking of Democracy and Citizenship, second in Africa in the Corruption Perception Index and leader in the ranking of public governance in sub-Saharan Africa.
He listed the "reforms and measures" carried out by the current government that had made it possible to "strengthen transparency in terms of accountability, control and financial supervision of the state, in terms of the management of autonomous funds, in terms of the management of public contracts and in terms of fiscal transparency.
"The creation of the Transparency Portal is ongoing. It started in April 2022, with the contracting of technical assistance provided by the International Monetary Fund. Expected completion: first quarter of 2023," he announced.
The creation of the Council for the Prevention of Corruption was another example given by the prime minister, who announced an international assessment of the performance of public finances: "Ca Vbperde will carry out an exercise of public spending and financial responsibility at the domestic level and in 2024 at the general level. It is an exercise that involves multilateral and bilateral partners in assessing the performance of public finances and transparency compared to other countries. Only countries with a good level of performance undergo this international assessment. It thus increases the credibility of the country.
He recalled that in February 2020, Cabo Verde left the European Union list of non-cooperative fiscal jurisdictions, "strengthening its reputational image".
"Cabo Verde was on the grey list, at risk of being placed on the black list. A series of measures were implemented for this exit to have happened," he explained.
