Cabo Verde

Yearbook 2006

Cape Verde. According to CountryAAH, Cape Verde's political course is fixed after parliamentary and presidential elections at the beginning of the year. The old Liberation Party PAICV retained government power after winning 40 of Parliament's 72 seats in a January election in which just over half of the eligible voters took part. The incumbent President Pedro Pires, who represents PAICV, was re-elected in February by a slight margin. Both election results were appealed with reference to alleged irregularities, but the protests were rejected by the Supreme Court. Prime Minister Josť Maria Neves presented a reformed government in March, where six of the fourteen ministers are women. Five new ministries were created, with responsibility for, among other things. higher education, family issues and housing policy.
