UNITA defends institution of Electoral Court for free and credible elections

The UNITA parliamentary group defended the need to establish an Electoral Court “respecting the sovereign will of the people, which organizes free, fair, transparent, democratic and credible elections”.


The position was expressed by the leader of the parliamentary group of the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA), Liberty Chiaka, during the period of Political Declarations, during the third ordinary plenary meeting of the 5th legislative session of the IV legislature of the National Assembly.

In an analysis of the organizational process of the general elections scheduled for the second half of August this year, Liberty Chiaka said that the unofficial electoral registration has taken place throughout the country "with numerous material, technical and human difficulties".

According to the deputy, the National Assembly's agenda for this plenary session, with 13 points, which continues on Friday, includes the discussion and voting on a draft resolution approving the replacement of members for provincial and municipal electoral commissions.
"Therefore, we must reflect on the role of the CNE [National Electoral Commission] in the organization and execution of electoral operations, especially its impact on the credibility of the electoral process and political stability", he underlined.

Liberty Chiaka recommended for the 2022-2027 term a special moment for the next President of the Republic and deputies to the National Assembly, taking into account that in its course, in 2025, Angola will complete 50 years of independence.

"It will be a moment of balance between the dream of freedom, dignity and prosperity manifested on February 4, 1961 and conquered on November 11, 1975 and the reality of Angola 50 years later", said the deputy, considering that it is necessary " recognize that political, economic, social, cultural and technological objectives have not been achieved".

The leader of the UNITA parliamentary group gave, among several examples of "failure" of the objectives for which the country became independent, not to have projected strong and powerful men, but, on the contrary, to have created "a society conditioned by a State Party and weakened the citizenship".

"Angola failed because it failed to achieve prosperity, social, economic justice and dignity. Angola is free from colonialism, but it is trapped in bad governance, fear, corruption, political intolerance, exclusion, electoral fraud, monolithic mentality and party militancy", he underlined.

To "build the Angola dreamed of on November 11, 1975", the UNITA parliamentary group proposes that, among other issues, an independent, non-partisan, impartial, impartial and committed electoral administration be formed.

"We need the de-partisanship of public administration and build effective responsible and inclusive institutions. We need to eradicate hunger, poverty, human and regional inequalities", he quoted.

As proposals, Liberty Chiaka also defended the need to rescue the direct election of the President of the Republic, in a unnominal list and answer to the National Assembly, carry out the municipalities in all municipalities and simultaneously, in 2023, defining a consensual electoral calendar and instituting a high authority against corruption, to resume an effective fight against this problem.
