Ulisses Correia e Silva is Next Prime Minister of Cape Verde

PRAIA – The Cape Verde opposition party, Movement for Democracy, or MPD, won on Monday the legislative elections in Cape Verde, and its leader, Ulisses Correia e Silva, will be the new prime minister, according to provisional results and local press.

The MPD, in opposition since 2001, won an absolute majority in the elections held on Sunday, so Correia, 54, the third head of the government of Cape Verde since the country’s independence, will govern the next five years without difficulties.

The African Party for the independence of the Cape Verde (Initial in Portuguese: PAICV), in power for the past 15 years, conceded their defeat.

According to official election result data, an abstention rate of 32.8 percent was recorded.

The next prime minister of Cape Verde was born on June 4, 1962 in Praia. He graduated in Organization and Management at the Economics Institute of the Technical University of Lisbon in 1988. He has dedicated himself to teaching at the University Jean Piaget and was Director of the Administration Department of the Bank of Cape Verde, according to local media.

He was secretary of State in charge of Finance between 1995-1998 and finance minister between 1999-2000.

Before being elected to his first term as President of the Municipal Chamber of Praia, Ulisses Correia e Silva was elected national representative and leader of the Parliamentary Group of MPD, a position he held for two years, from 2006-2008.
