Timor-Leste just celebrated its 18th year of independence. The celebration was muted partly due to Covid19 but even more so due to the political crisis.

Various parties have blamed each other as being the root of the political crisis. The question to consider is whether there is a deeper root to the crisis that has gone unnoticed?

Generally, people think that the political crisis is due to the fathers of the nation having disagreements. Perhaps we need to ask a deeper question. WHY or WHO is causing our national heroes to have such disagreements?

H.E. Xanana Gusmao, H.E. Mari Alkariti, H.E. Jose Ramos Horta, H.E. Lu-Olo, H.E. Taur Matan Ruak and H.E. Lere Anan are considered fathers to this beloved nation. Freitilin as Nicolao Lobato said is a national movement for independence. Soon after the country obtained independence, certain people started to privatise these national leaders and national movement for their own selfish purposes.

Many of these people cast an invisible shadow on the Government and Parliament by their indirect influences through the political parties. They hide behind the curtain of political parties and the national fathers. They use and many times misuse the names and positions of our fathers to advance their own agendas to consolidate power and wealth.

Perhaps it’s time for the national fathers of Timor-Leste to be allowed to rise above party politics. They deserve the position of highest honor in Timor-Leste. This is easier said than done. Afterall, many members from these political parties will try to convince them otherwise because they need to leverage on the status and position of the national fathers.

Perhaps it’s time for the formation of a Non-Political Council of Elders. This council could consist of the national fathers, former Presidents and former Prime Ministers. Being part of this special council means having no more political party affiliations. This council gives advice to the Government and Parliament of Timor-Leste on a regular basis. In a sense, all our founding fathers become Elder Statesmen who mentor, train and impart their wealth of wisdom, experience and know-how to the next generation of leaders. The Government can assign them special active roles and positions that they feel need their direct intervention.

Currently, H.E. Xanana Gusmao, H.E. Dr. Jose Ramos Horta and H.E. Mari Alkatiri do not occupy active roles in the Government or military. Perhaps they can be the first 3 members of this Non-Political Council of Elders to give guidance to the current Government and Legislation assembly.

Perhaps this will end the political crisis. This will give the national fathers the position of honor that they deserve and rightly due to them. No longer will their names be used by political parties to further their own interests and agendas. No longer will they be manipulated by others to cause a deep fracture in this nation. No longer will others flippantly use their names or hide behind their names. Let their names no longer be tarnished.

It’s time to give proper respect and honor to the national fathers of Timor-Leste. It’s time to let them father the next generation of leaders away from partisan politics. It’s time for the next generation of leaders to stop privatizing their names and to stand up on their own merit and capabilities. 

Tempotimor (Dili) – Six members of the government of Timor-Leste resign from their posts. They follow the decision of the CNRT president to withdraw the party from the eighth constitutional government. Three cabinet members who are not CNRT-members but had been proposed by the party decided to remain part of the government.
