UNITA says CNE prevented complaints from appearing in the minutes

UNITA deputy Mihaela Webba this Wednesday accused the president of the National Electoral Commission (CNE) of preventing the complaint made by the representative of the largest opposition party from appearing in the minutes of the final results of the elections.


Speaking to Lusa, the jurist stressed that UNITA filed complaints at all stages of the process and with the provincial and electoral commissions and two in Luanda, and criticized the president of the CNE, Manuel Pereira da Silva, for not allowing the representative to of UNITA to include its complaint in the minutes of the tabulation of results.

"The representative of UNITA was obstructed from presenting his complaint, the president of the CNE said that the process was already concluded and that he did not accept and closed the meeting", he said, considering that this violates the organic law that requires the CNE to receive all the complaints.

The CNE announced on Tuesday that it has not received any complaints from political parties about the final results of the 24 August elections and has outright dismissed complaints about the minutes presented by UNITA and CASA-CE.

The information was transmitted by the CNE spokesman, Lucas Quilundo, at the end of the plenary session that followed the publication of the final results of the national poll, noting that the plenary considered three complaints and none were related to the election results.

A piece of information that was contradicted this Wednesday by the UNITA deputy: "We were always making complaints as the process progressed, for example, in relation to the minutes where the number of voters does not appear".

Mihaela Webba also mentioned that, according to the parallel count that UNITA has been carrying out, the MPLA did not win with an absolute majority and that if the court recounts the votes "it will verify that the MPLA may have lost". The jurist indicated that the count is complete and that the data will be presented publicly soon.

UNITA is also preparing a challenge on the results of the elections to the Constitutional Court, which should happen until this Thursday at 15:00, as the parties have 72 hours to protest against the results that were announced on Monday.

The CNE announced on Monday that the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) won the elections in Angola with 51.17 percent of the votes against 43.95 percent for UNITA.
