"In 2015, growing tensions between President José Mário Vaz and Prime Minister Domingos Simões Pereira resulted in the dismissal of the latter in August. After months of political uncertainty, a new government led by Carlos Correia of the ruling the African Party for the Independence of Guinea-Bissau and Cabo Verde (PAIGC) was appointed by the president in October. The new government's proposed budget was rejected in December 2015 and, if not confirmed in 2016, may lead to yet another government or new elections."
