  • Description

    President of Mauritania Moktar Ould Daddah arrived in Nema, in the South east of Mauritania, on Wednesday (9 July).

    Mr Ould Daddah flew into Nema from the capital Nonakchott. He had come to attend the seminar of the People's Party, the single political party of the Mauritanian state.

    At Nema airport, the President was welcomed by the Governor of the province, Mr. Sidi Mohamed Abdernahmane, and other government and party officials. He watched a military march-past in his honour and was entertained by a group of native musicians.

    When his entourage reached the main square of Nema, crowds of party militants greeted their leader.

    Among those in the President's party was Mrs. Mohamet Sidi Aly, permanent Secretary-General of the Saleh youth movement.

    In a speech on the opening of the Seminar on July 9, President Ould Daddah said that its work would proceed under the banner 'Action' ignoring 'Words and Speech'. He stressed that the type of direct contact between all strata of the party membership which the Seminar provided should be the occasion for frank debates on the ??? authority of the party. He exhorted the militants to criticise the leaders objectively starting with the President himself.

    The Seminar will also debate on the economic and social condition of the various religions, and on how the inhabitants can be informed of government decisions.
