Ondjiva — The bishop of the Lutheran Evangelic Church in Angola (IELA), Tomás Ndawanapo, Sunday in southern Cunene province urged the citizens to join en mass to the poling stations, in general elections slated for 31 August this year.
The church authority said that it is essential that each citizen exercises his or her right to choose the president of Republic.
He said that by doing so the Angolan population would contribute to the improvement of their living conditions.
On the other hand, Tomás Ndawanapo called on the voters to keep organised for vote on 31 August, in order to create a health environment that will allow everyone to celebrate the festival of democracy in a climate of peace and unity.
According to him, the church, as a partner of the government, will continue working in a fair and serious manner, abiding by the Christian principles and doctrines, for a more humble and peaceful society.
