    Background: Angola's first black dominated Government will take office in Luanda on Saturday (1 February) to guide the territory to full independence from Portugal on November 11. Mr. Johnny Eduardo has been named as the representative of the National Front for the Liberation of Angola (FNLA) and he arrived to an enthusiastic welcome at Luanda airport on Wednesday (29 January).

    The FNLA is one of the three liberation groups which will share power in the Presidential triumvirate heading the transitional Government. The head of the FNLA, Mr Holden Roberto is not expected to be present when power is handed over.

    The independence agreement, reached at a summit conference in the Algarve by Portugal and the three movements, distributes the 12 ministerial portfolios equally between the three liberation movements and the Portuguese authorities. It also provides for a joint national defence council and the creation of an Angolan National Army to which each movement will contribute forces.
