Angola: Electoral Commission Passes 2012 Elections Report

Luanda — The National Electoral Commission (CNE) last Monday in Luanda approved the report relating to the 2012 general elections, at its first ordinary session of this year, a gathering that was chaired by the CNE chairman, André da Silva Neto.

The 100-page document is divided in four chapters relating to the pre-electoral, electoral and post-election phases, as well as the section dedicated to constraints and recommendations.

The report received several contributions from the CNE members, which enriched it, as well as recommendations at legislative and organisational level, with a view to improving the country's electoral processes.

The 2012 elections were won by the ruling MPLA party with 71.84 per cent of the votes and its presidential candidate, José Eduardo dos Santos, followed by UNITA (18.66%), CASA-CE coalition (6%), PRS (1.70%) and FNLA ((1.13%).
