Chivukuvuku threatens to sue Government and says PRA-JA Serving Angola will be legal

Politician Abel Chivukuvuku, leader of PRA JA Servir Angola, announced that he will sue the authorities for making it impossible to formalize his political project, which, however, he hopes to legalize later this year.


Abel Chivukuvuku was speaking to journalists in Luanda near the place where a march would end today, which, however, was not authorized by the Provincial Government of Luanda.

"We are going to rebuild the legalization process. We are going to sue the government, the Ministry of Territorial Administration and the Ministry of Justice for material, moral and psychological damages", he announced.

At issue are signatures that were taken to the municipal administrations and authenticated, but which the Constitutional Court did not accept, questioning the fact that documents validated by the administrations (which belong to the State) were not accepted by another State body, which is the court.

"So we were deceived by the State bodies", criticized the politician.

Chivukuvuku also stated that the PRA-JA "lead" also caused the deaths of five militants who were psychologically affected and "a lot of people" suffered, a process that he hopes to see completed this quarter, along with the annulment of the judgment of the TC.

"Our objective is that, by the end of the year, the PRA JA will be legal. I had already warned you, they close the door, I go through the window. In 2022, I go through the window. If they close the window, I go through the roof, I go through anyway," he joked.

The Constitutional Court of Angola definitively rejected the legalization of PRA-JA Servir Angola, at the end of 2020, after several negative responses and appeals filed by the political party’s installation commission

At issue would be doubts regarding the more than 30,000 signatures that the party collected with a view to its legalization, and according to the law, it is necessary to collect the signatures of at least 7,500 citizens duly recognized by the administration.

In the judgment in which it rejected the extraordinary appeal presented by the PRA-JA for "not remedying shortcomings" and presenting "ambiguous allegations", the Constitutional Court referred the possible legalization of this party to the next four years.

"In the case of processes of political parties subscribed by a group of citizens, only four years after the date of rejection of the accreditation process for the registration of a political party or of the judgment confirming it, you have the possibility of requesting the registration of a new party project", indicated the TC.

It should be noted that Abel Chivukuvuku was a member and leader of UNITA from 1974 to 2012 and then leader of the CASA-CE coalition, for which he won 16 seats in the National Assembly and from which he was removed in 2019.

CASA-CE lost, however, parliamentary representation and was unable to elect any deputy in the 2022 general elections.

Chivukuvuku presented the PRA-JA in August 2019, with the ambition of representing an alternative in the national political panorama, but the new political formation failed to be legalized by the TC.
