Cape Verde - Constitution

Cape Verde - Constitution, The Republic of Cape Verde is, according to the 1992 Constitution, a multi-party state; however, parties with religious or geographical boundaries are not allowed. The head of state is the president who is elected by direct election for five years. The legislative power lies with the 79 members of the National Assembly, who are elected by ordinary, direct elections for five years. The executive rests with the prime minister, who is nominated by the largest party of parliament and appointed by the president. Following a constitutional referendum in 1995, the president's powers were expanded; at the same time, the autonomy of local bodies was strengthened. In 1999, the post was created as a national ombudsman (Provedor de Justica).

Cape Verde - literature

Cape Verde - literature, Among the former Portuguese colonies, Cape Verde also appeared in the field of literature with a special status. There was a relatively high literacy rate - also in relation to the mother country - and the local intelligentsia there and in Angola constituted the spearhead of an African literature in Portuguese. Characteristic of Cape Verde has also been an extensive use of the local Creole language as a literary medium.

An early forerunner was José Evaristo d'Almeida, whose novel O escravo (1856, The Slave) is considered the first Cape Verde, but first around it, for the formation of a Cape Verde identity so crucial journal Claridade (Clarity, 1930-60), a greater circle of writers; among these were the founders Jorge Barbosa (1902-71), Baltasar Lopes (1907-90) and Manuel Lopes (1907-2005) who, respectively. the poetry collection Arquipélago (1935, Other) and the novels Chiquinho (1947) and Chuva Braba (1947, Wild Rain) created pioneering works in Cape Verde literature.

In reaction to the tendency of escapist Eurocentrism of the Claridade flow, in the 1960's a more African and politically oriented direction emerged, Nova Largada (New Beginning) with Onésimo Silveira (b. 1935) as an ideologist. This trend gained further strength with independence in 1975, but the recent Cape Verde literature also contains aesthetically experimental works such as Pão & Fonema (1974, Bread & Fonem) by the poet Corsino Fortes (1933-2015). Around the journal Ponto & Vírgula (Semicolon, 1983-87), a postmodern reorientation set in, with Germano Almeida (b. 1945) as the central figure and his subtly ironic novel O meu poeta (1990, My poet) as the representative work.
