Humanist Party questions “excess” of ballot papers at each polling station

The Humanist Party of Angola (PHA) questioned this Monday the “excess” of ballots in each electoral station, “100 ballots for 750 voters”, for the general elections, and the “destination of the surplus”, asking for clarifications to the electoral entity.


"On the ballot paper, today with the change in the law (on general elections) it is said that in each polling station there must be up to 750 people and despite this change, the CNE (National Electoral Commission) ordered packages of 100 ballot papers vote", said this Monday to Lusa the representative of the PHA, Nsimba Luwawa.

Even with the change in the law, observed the politician, "the CNE ordered volumes of 100 ballot papers, for each assembly, but it can be seen that there is an excess here, that is, those ballots that are left over, what treatment will be given to this excess?" he asked.

"What guarantees does the CNE have for the control of this excess", questioned again the representative of the PHA, a party that saw its request for clarification on the lack of publication of the list of voters for months of voting rejected last Saturday.

According to CNE spokesman Lucas Quilundo, this request by the PHA, the party competing in the August 24 elections, was rejected by the plenary of the electoral body for having been made "out of time".

This Monday, Nsimba Luwawa explained that the dismissed complaint is part of a package of complaints sent to the CNE, referring that the electoral entity responded "partially" to his complaints.

"Actually, there were several points that we raised, some were requests for complaints and others we would really like to be answered", he stressed.

"For example, we raised an issue regarding the ballot paper, we raised an issue related to the list of voters per polling station, we also raised an issue related to voting outside the designated location," he stressed.

For the representative of the party led by Florbela Malaquias, a lawyer and former journalist, the issue of off-site voting is mainly centered on list delegates.

"Especially for people who will work at polling stations, especially list delegates, we wanted to know from the CNE what the security conditions are for these people and the other issue has to do with the minutes of the polling stations", he stressed.

A large part of "our concerns", she added, "were not answered" by the CNE: "That is why we have already positioned ourselves and sent our position today", concluded Nsimba Luwawa.

The general elections, the fifth ballot in the country's political history, are scheduled for August 24 and eight political groups, campaigning since July 24, are chasing votes across the country.
