East Timor Parliament uses Portuguese for first time

in News · 26-03-2011 00:00:00 · 0 Comments

Portuguese was used for the first time this week in a plenary session of East Timor’s parliament, fulfilling a decision taken by the legislature last year.

Speaker Fernando Lasama Araújo explained the option, underlining the need for lawmakers to become familiar with the country’s second official language along with the local Tetum.
Parliament approved last October a motion obliging the use of Portuguese at least once per month in plenary and commission sessions. TPN Lusa
