MPLA says it accepts results announced by the CNE and urges opposition to do the same

MPLA leader João Lourenço said this Thursday that his party will “accept and respect” the results of the August 24 elections and urged all competitors to do the same.


The President and head of the list for the general elections of the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) considered that the "provisional and then the definitive results, whatever those may be, must be respected by the candidates".

The political parties that compete in the elections, "by this simple fact, assume the commitment to defend peace and stability, the Constitution and the law and to accept the electoral results after being announced by the competent entity".

The competent entity is the National Electoral Commission (CNE), he stressed, to announce the provisional results and then the definitive ones and "whatever these results are must be respected by the candidates, whether they are favorable to each party or not".

"All of us competitors have an obligation to accept the electoral results", exhorted João Lourenço, during a political act, within the scope of the electoral campaign, which took place in the city of Ndalatando, Kwanza Norte province.

The candidate recalled that "a democratic and lawful State has been implemented in Angola and that means that everything is based on the law and this must be respected".

"This is the position of the MPLA, there is no need to invent other mechanisms to force citizens to fight for peace and stability", he stressed.

For the president of the "comrades" party, the democratic regime has "sufficient credible mechanisms to guarantee respect for peace and stability" in the country "before, during and after the elections".

Is anyone afraid of the announcement of the results?, questioned João Lourenço, replying: "Nobody. We, the MPLA, will respect them and we are inviting all competing parties to have the same attitude".

"It's often said that those who shouldn't, don't fear", he shot.

Regarding the need for stability, in this period of the electoral campaign, an idea that he said "is embraced" by the MPLA, he defended that stability and peace "must exist in any period with or without elections".

"These are goods (peace and stability) that do not necessarily have to be linked only to the holding of elections. At least this is the MPLA's commitment and we hope that it is also the commitment of all political parties and that it is permanent", he reinforced. .

Eight political groups compete in the August 24 general elections, in which 14 million voters, registered in the database of older citizens, must vote.
