Following independence in 1975, and a tentative interest in unification with Guinea-Bissau, a one-party system was established and maintained until multi-party elections were held in 1990. Most Cabo Verdeans have both African and Portuguese antecedents. Official languages: Portuguese and Cape Verdean Creole) {https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/cv.html}

In 2013, the Cape Verdean government determined that the Portuguese designation "Cabo Verde" would henceforth be used for official purposes, such as at the United Nations, even in English contexts)
