FRETILIN WILL NOT ACCEPT GOVERNING BEFORE FRESH ELECTIONS

Digital Daily – Thursday, September 9, 2010

FRETILIN’s leader and former prime minister of Timor-Leste, Mari Alkatiri, said today that his party is not willing to form a Government within the current parliamentary term, despite being the party with the most seats.

“I have already communicated to the President that we are not willing to form a Government for two years, because at least two years will be needed just to correct the mistakes made by the de facto Government, led by Xanana Gusmao,” he said.

Speaking to Lusa, Mari Alkatiri stressed that FRETILIN promotes stability and therefore will not take advantage of the current political crisis created by the resignation of Deputy Prime Minister Mario Carrascalao, to make a grab for power.
