A Government press release announced that the Stability Pact must be finalized and signed before the general elections on November 18

The signing of the Stability Pact is part of the Conakry- Lomé agreements and aims at establishing a national commitment to the country's political, economic and social stability.

The decision to sign the Stability Pact before the general elections of November 18 was made yesterday during a meeting between Guinea-Bissau's Prime Minister and all political parties with parliamentary representation (PAIGC, PRS, PCD, PND, and UM), which defined the "conditions for the finalization" of that instrument.

"With regard to the deadlines for the finalization of the Stability Pact, the meeting on Monday determined that such deadlines should be set until September, so as to enable the signing of said pact before the November elections," the press release says.

The PM will also meet with political parties without parliamentary representation and civil society organizations to hear more opinions.
