The Mozambican political scientist João Pereira said today that the crises that Mozambique through strongly discredit Frelimo, considering that the party in power for more than 40 years proves unable to provide solutions to the problems of the Mozambican people.
"These situations all strongly descredibilizaram FRELIMO [Liberation Front of Mozambique]," he told Lusa Professor of Political Science at the University Eduardo Mondlane, on the sidelines of a demonstration against the political crisis and the economic situation of the country, organized in Maputo .For the Mozambican academic, the values for which the Frelimo fought for independence were forgotten and, in recent times, the party led by Filipe Nyusi also head of state, went from a political organization that responds to the needs of its people for a simple machine electoral.
Unable to meet the basic needs of its people and without political reforms that respond to the dynamism of the new times, noted the political scientist, Frelimo risks losing the next election claims, to the extent that the dissatisfaction of the population grows gradually.
"If the economic crisis increase, no doubt, the probability of winning is very small for Frelimo," said the academic, warning that electoral abstention levels in the last elections reveal a disbelief in policy by the Mozambicans.Skeptical about the results of the negotiations recently re-established between the Government and the Mozambican National Resistance (Renamo), João Pereira believes that the process to end the political and military crisis will be too long, noting that while the parties do not restore confidence, Afonso Dhlakama will not come out of the bush to negotiate with the President, Filipe Nyusi."I do not know if these committees will be able to reach agreements to facilitate the departure of Afonso Dhlakama," he said, pointing to the requirement of Renamo to govern the six provinces where claims victory in the 2014 elections and the insertion frames Afonso Dhlakama of the party in police and army as aspects that will create more disagreements in the negotiation process.
"We will still have a very difficult time," he said, noting that in the near future the situation will deteriorate, although the leaders of both parties have recently expressed the ambition to end the political crisis in Mozambique.On Thursday, the Mozambican president said he will accept the presence of mediators in the negotiations between the government and Renamo, pointing an immediate end to the fighting as a priority.The leader of the main opposition party Mozambican said on Friday that reached by telephone consensus with the head of the Mozambican state, Filipe Nyusi on peace, but it did depend on the end of armed conflicts security guarantees.Mozambique has seen a worsening of the clashes between the Defense Forces and Security and the armed wing of Renamo, and mutual accusations of abductions and assassinations of militants on both sides.The main opposition party refuses to accept the results of the general elections in 2014, threatening to rule in six provinces where claims victory in the poll.
