The President of the Republic of Cape Verde promulgated the appointment of Jorge Eduardo de Figueiredo as the new ambassador of the country in Mozambique, a function that he will accumulate with that of ambassador in Angola.
According to the Presidential Decree 18 /2019 of July 19 and to which Lusa had access today, the Cape Verdean President Jorge Carlos Fonseca promulgated the nomination, following the proposal made by the Government, which indicted Jorge Eduardo de Figueiredo, current ambassador to Angola, as extraordinary ambassador and plenipotentiary in Mozambique, but "residing in Luanda."
In another decree of the same date, the head of state promulgated, also following a proposal from the Government, the decision to "end" the service commission of Domingos Dias Pereira Mascarenhas, hitherto extraordinary and plenipotentiary ambassador of Cape Verde in Mozambique.
Both decrees came into force on Friday.
Among other functions of diplomatic representation, Domingos Dias Pereira Mascarenhas was once Cape Verdean ambassador in the Vatican.
