New FADM recruitments may no longer be annual

Novos recrutamentos para FADM podem deixar de ser anuais

The Director of Human Resources at the Ministry of National Defense (MDN) recently said that the next incorporations of young men into the institution may no longer take place annually.

This provision is based on the new Law on Compulsory Military Service, recently approved by Parliament. It provides for new recruits to serve for the mandatory five to six years before opting for demobilization.

"Previously there were annual recruitments, but the new law will make it possible to lower operating costs in the recruitment field," said Jorge Leonel, quoted by the newspaper. News However, the new law is not yet in force.

When the approved law was proposed, the head of the MDN, Cristóvão Chume, explained that it aimed to readjust the current law to the country's current needs. But it was also intended to incorporate highly qualified military personnel.

Another gain, according to Chume, will be the sustainability of the operational costs for recruiting young men, which will be at the government's discretion, and the increase in salaries for soldiers and sergeants.

The MDN's projections for this year indicate that around 220,000 young men will be registered throughout the country.
