On 8 December, the majority Mozambique Liberation Front (Frelimo) bench approved the National Assembly's action plan and budget for 2016, but the 59 Mozambique National Resistance (Renamo) Members of Parliament (MPs) abstained and their 11 Mozambique Democratic Movement (MDM) counterparts voted against.

The bench of the Mozambique Democratic Movement (MDM) considers that the legislature VII, which waxed on 04 December, after the V Session, was positive as a result of having been discussed and approved many of the projects submitted by the Government.
