Luanda — The coordinator of the Broad Convergence for Angola's Salvation-Electoral Coalition (CASA-CE)'s electoral campaign, André Gaspar Mendes de Carvalho, said Tuesday in Luanda his organisation will stand against the ruling MPLA party alone.
André Mendes de Carvalho was speaking at the inauguration of the National Headquarters for Coordination of the Electoral Campaign of CASA-CE.
"CASA-CE just stands against the ruling party, never against any opposition political force.
With these we want to continue keeping a relation of solidarity and cooperation, mainly concerning the monitoring and control of the vote," he said.
To André Mendes de Carvalho who is the second name on CASA-CE election list, the opposition must watch the counting of votes seeking to ensure the truth and fairness in the electoral process.
He said as well his organisation stands for security, peace and tranquillity and wishes the election to go in an orderly way.
CASA-CE groups the parties PALMA, PPA, PNSA (ex- POC) and PADDA-AP, and is led by Abel Chivukuvuku.
Nine political parties and coalition are contesting the August 31 election. They are CASA-CE, FNLA, CPO, PAPOD, FUMA, MPLA (ruling), PRS, UNITA and ND.
