CNE asks parties to avoid messages that lead to extremism

The president of the National Electoral Commission (CNE) this Wednesday urged the parties competing in the August 24 elections to “comply strictly with the law”, in relation to the way of communicating, “avoiding taking voters to extreme moments”.


"We draw attention to the parties and coalitions of competing parties that must enforce the constitution and the law and the code of conduct with regard to the form of communication, avoiding taking voters to extreme moments", said this Wednesday Manuel Pereira da Silva.

The president of the CNE, who was speaking this Wednesday at the opening of a workshop on electoral coverage, aimed at journalists from national and foreign bodies, also asked voters to "not remain" at polling stations after exercising their right.

"We appeal to all voters who, after voting, should immediately return to their residence, because if we do not do so, we would be contravening a rule of electoral law", he stressed.

Manuel Pereira da Silva asked journalists to strengthen electoral civic education among citizens, reiterating that the voter "does not need to remain in the assembly after the vote".

"The voter after the vote really has to return home and wait for the results with peace of mind", he stressed.

The CNE leader also assured that the electoral results will be produced by a body whose mission is to "organize, coordinate, lead", and more than that, he stressed, carry out the electoral process in an "exempt, transparent way" and, by stumbling of communication, he also said "nonsense".

For the August 24 general elections, 3212 polling stations and more than 26,000 polling stations will be spread across the 18 provinces.

Establishing with precision and accuracy the space for intervention of the media in the electoral process is the main objective of this workshop, which runs until Thursday, in Luanda.

Ensuring greater and better mastery of contents and concepts in electoral matters and establishing a partnership relationship with the different media are among the specific objectives of the meeting.

The CNE and its bodies, the media, the role of the media in the different phases of the electoral process, institutional communication, the electoral civic education campaign and the Electoral Observation Law constitute the thematic contents of this workshop.

The fifth general elections in Angola's political history are scheduled for 24 August and eight political forces, already in the electoral campaign, are competing for the election.
