MPLA continues to sensitize citizens to orderly and peaceful elections

The vice-president of the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) said this Thursday, in Luanda, that they continue to sensitize their potential voters so that the August elections are held “in an orderly and peaceful manner”.


Luísa Damião was speaking at the end of a meeting promoted by the executive to address issues related to the electoral process, namely doubts about the official electoral registration, which lasted six months.

"Democracy is done with everyone, but we need to respect the laws and we are parties with a parliamentary seat, we are the ones who pass the laws so we must inform potential voters so that they can be on the subject and have no doubts", he stressed.

According to Luísa Damião, the MPLA has been appealing "to avoid violence, to avoid political intolerance".

"So that we can all put our fingerprints, so that this process is in fact a true feast of democracy", she said.

Asked if political intolerance and violence are the main fears of the ruling party in these elections, Luísa Damião replied no, stressing that the MPLA is playing its role.

"We are educating our voters in this regard and I think that all of us who are in this process of building and strengthening our democracy should work on raising the awareness of our potential voters not to adhere to violence and political intolerance", she added.

The MPLA vice-president said that the party has carried out work in the field of civic education, for the "civic and electoral elevation" of citizens, as well as "to make them understand that elections must be a process in which each one participates in a free, but for that they have to be qualified to do so".

"We encourage potential voters to update their data, especially those who have moved and those who are going to vote for the first time," she added.

Angola, which to date has 11 legalized political parties, will hold its fifth general election in August this year.
