Frelimo MPs at Odds Over Mozambique Electoral Bill
The ruling Frelimo Party is reportedly divided over constitutional amendments that will end separate election of mayors and increase the power of senior and national party officials. If the ruling party agrees internally with these changes, it has to gain agreement with opposition parties too - but with the death of opposition leader Afonso Dhlakama it's unclear if new leadership will steer Renamo towards parliamentary politics or election boycotts and violence.
