Sao Tome and Principe

Yearbook 2008

São Tomé and Príncipe. According to Countryaah reports, the unstable parliamentary situation that prevailed after an unclear result in the 2006 general election led in February to the government not being able to support its budget. Prime Minister Tomé Vera Cruz and his government resigned, but unrest continued. New Prime Minister Patrice Emery Trovoada, leader of parliament's third largest party, Independent Democratic Action (ADI), was dismissed by a declaration of confidence after only three months, after which the president gave the government assignment to the second largest party, the former MLSTP/ PSD Liberation Movement. New Prime Minister became party leader Joaquim Rafael Branco. ADI accused the president of violating the constitution through the appointment of Branco.
