Dili, September 24th, 2020 – His Excellency the Prime Minister, Taur Matan Ruak, called on the public not to believe the irresponsible rumors circulating on social media about his resignation. These rumors are false, even because the Chief Executive is currently directly committed to the 2021 General State Budget’s preparations, chairing, this week, the Budgetary Political Review Committee (CROP) for the 2021 General State Budget Proposal’s evaluation.
“ I think that maybe they are dreaming. Prime Minister will not resign. There is no more time to resign, now we have a lot of work and we have to submit the budget to the National Parliament. Why resign now? There’s nothing, there’s no need to believe on that rumors. I think that, maybe, they are a little hungry”, clarified the Chief Executive, answering to the journalists about his resignation issue, after the weekly meeting with the Head of State, this Thursday, at the Nicolau Lobato Presidential Palace.
