Parliament: Most decisions and laws were passed by consensus in 2020; tends to be “closed to the citizens’ opinions” – IMD

Most of the decisions of the Mozambican parliament were consensual during the year 2020, the Institute for Multiparty Democracy (IMD) says, advising, however, that the deputies should listen more to citizens’ opinions and “interact”.

“Out of a total of 83 resolutions and 12 laws passed in 2020, 72 resolutions and nine laws were agreed [by consensus]. In percentage terms, these data correspond to 87% and 75%, respectively,” the IMD highlights.

The institution says that approval by consensus “values the commitment shown by all parliamentary benches to discuss matters of national interest stripped of party ties”.
