Cabo Verde

Yearbook 2012

Cape Verde. On July 1, local elections were held in Cape Verde's 22 municipalities. According to countryaah, the opposition party The Movement for Democracy (MPD) was clearly victorious and gained control of 13 municipalities, an increase with one municipality compared to before. The governing Cape Verde's African Independence Party (PAICV) received reduced support, from ten to eight municipalities. In one municipality, an independent candidate, supported by MPD, won. Assessors felt that the government's poor election results could hurt Prime Minister Josť Maria Neves' reputation.
