The president and the first lady, Ana Dias Lourenço, carried out the procedure on Monday at the Administrative Commission of the City of Luanda, which was broadcast live on public radio and television.
In brief statements to the press, the national director of registration of the Ministry of Territory Administration, Fernando Paixão, considered that the ceremony was an example of civility, when there is still some delay in the response of citizens.
He confirmed that in the next few days more offices will be opened throughout the country, in order to ease the process of updating the unofficial electoral registry of people older than18 years.
There are also about 450 thousand Angolans living abroad, most of them in the Republic of Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia, Namibia, Portugal, the United States and Brazil.
The current revision of the informal registry began on September 15 and contemplates the delivery of a personal document on the municipality of residence, in order to allow the location of voters in each territorial constituency.
According to the legislation in force, the updated database will be made available to the National Electoral Commission, which will be responsible for the official register, after corrections of possible errors or omissions, promoted in each case by the interested parties.
