Angola Court to conclude elections analysis

Luanda, Sep 8 (Prensa Latina) The Constitutional Court (TC) in Angola will present today its final deliberations on the fifth general elections in the country, held on August 24 with the intervention of eight political forces.

The body explained in a brief announcement to the national and foreign press that it is impossible to estimate the duration of the plenary session, but at the end of the meeting in this capital they will provide information to journalists.

According to the Angolan legislation, the TC has the responsibility to examine the appeals filed by any of the competing parties or coalitions of parties, due to disagreements with the data coming from the National Electoral Commission (CNE).

The court is due to issue its conclusions this Thursday on a joint claim by Unita and the Bloque Democratico for discrepancies with the CNE’s official tallies.

In compliance with the law, the TC also reviewed the claim made by the Broad Convergence for the Salvation of Angola – Electoral Coalition (CASA-CE), which was dismissed as a consequence of non-compliance with legal procedures and insufficient evidence.

According to the CNE, on August 24 about 6.4 million citizens went to the polls for a 44.82 percent turnout and an abstention rate of 55.18 percentage.

With more than 3.2 million votes, the ruling Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) won by absolute majority, obtaining 51.17 percent of the valid votes cast.
