Members of the Senate Permanent Commission on Education, Culture, Information and Sport met on 31st October at the Ngolo International Palace of Congresses and Conferences, to adopt the act and verdict resulting from the study in second reading of the reformulation of Article 41 in section five, relating to Higher Education under Law No. 5/2007, of 30th October, on General Education in Equatorial Guinea.
The session, led by the President of the Senate, Teresa Efua Asangono, began with a reading of the act and verdict by the first secretary of the commission, Matusalen Oburu Ondo, after the First Vice Prime Minister of the Government and Minister for Education, University Teaching and Sports, Clemente Engonga Nguema Ongueme, had appeared before the commission overseen by Maria Teresa Avoro Nguema, to defend the new educational system of qualifications based on Degree, Master and Doctorate.
The session on the day was initially aimed at reviewing the documents in order to ascertain that they contained all the points raised during the modification work on the tool.
The senators on the commission decided to adopt the reformulation of Article 41, following its redrafting by the mixed Senate-Government commission, as they considered that it was a new structure that aimed to harmonise the national education system through standards recognised in the CEMAC area.
