Cabinet Trovoada II
The Trovoada II Cabinet is the 14th Government of São Tomé and Príncipe, in Portuguese the XIV Governo Constitucional de São Tomé e Príncipe. It is the second government formed under Prime Minister Patrice Trovoada in the African island nation of São Tomé and Príncipe, after the previous coalition of MLSTP-PCD, as well as MDFM suffered heavy losses in the 2010 general elections and could not agree on a continuation of the coalition.
Trovoada formed a minority ADI government, which was appointed on 13 August and sworn in on 14 August. Trovoada’s second cabinet included some independents, such as the non-party diplomat Manuel Salvador dos Ramos as foreign minister.
After a first vote of no confidence in July 2012 was rejected due to formal errors by Evaristo Carvalho, as President of the Assembleia Nacional, he resigned from his post in a second vote of no confidence on 21 November 2012, so that only after the election of a new President of the Assembleia Nacional could the vote of no confidence on 28 November 2012 be dealt with, which toppled the minority government of the ADI.
On 4 December, Trovoada and his cabinet were removed from office by President Manuel Pinto da Costa, and former Prime Minister Gabriel Arcanjo da Costa was charged with forming a new government, uniting the entire opposition in his new cabinet.
