From 2017 to June 2021, around five million individuals received the certificate, said legislator Julia Ornelas, quoted by Jornal de Angola newspaper.
According to legislator Paulo de Carvalho, the effort to increase civil inclusion of Angolans is praiseworthy, as in 2019, approximately nine million people do not have a birth registration and the current estimate dropped to almost more than three million.
De Carvalho also appreciated the relative progress in terms of school and financial inclusion of the population.
For example, he said, at the end of the war in 2002, 2.5 million people entered the education system up to middle school; in 2020, the figure was 10 million, and the number of classrooms reached from 20,000 to 93,000.
Beyond the individual question, the analysis adds, it is virtually impossible to plan or implement effective development strategies, without solid civil registration systems.
