Pereira was nominated by the National Congress for the Timorese Reconstruction (CNRT), while another candidate Duarte Tilman was nominated by the Democratic Party (PD).
MP Adriano Nacimento from the PD Party said he is displeased with the result of the vote, as all CNRT and Fretilin Party MPs voted for Ms. Pereira.
MP Duarte “Dusai” said they voted for Pereira, as she is an experienced legal practitioner in the country.
Parliamentary President Fernando “Lasama” de Araujo said the Parliament conducted this vote according to the Article 125 of the Constitution.
