In a statement from the communication and marketing secretariat, the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA) insists on not recognizing the electoral results, validated last week by the Constitutional Court "because they are contrary to the will expressed by the majority of voters at the polls". and denounces the denial of the right to justice.
At issue is the fact that the Constitutional Court (TC) rejected the request for clarification of judgment 769/2022, in which it dismissed the appeal presented by UNITA, thus ending the electoral dispute process.
The Black Rooster party also appeals to the common sense of the defense and security forces "deployed throughout the country and equipped with heavy ordnance, to refrain from the use of force against citizens".
The armed forces raised the state of combat readiness until 20 September to avoid incidents that "disturb public order and tranquility".
In addition to strengthening security measures for the main economic and strategic objectives and State institutions, patrolling in urban and suburban centers was intensified.
Columns of military and police vehicles, with armored cars, have circulated on the main access roads to Luanda, giving visibility to the military orders.
"UNITA understands that such a framework aims to intimidate the citizen who intends to demonstrate against the electoral results, on the day of inauguration, of a President without legitimacy", underlines the communiqué of the party led by Adalberto da Costa Júnior.
According to the final tabulation minutes of the August 24 general elections, the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) and its candidate, the outgoing President, João Lourenço, won with 51.17 percent of the votes, followed by the UNITA, with 43.95 percent.
UNITA is considering "all scenarios" admitting to taking office in parliament, while other opposition parties are divided.
The PRS has not yet decided on the swearing in of deputies and the FNLA has also referred a decision on the swearing in of deputies to the party structures.
Already the representative of the debutant PHA, led by Bela Malaquias, said that his party is only waiting for the inauguration day, guaranteeing that his two deputies will have a "big debut" and that they must represent the voters with dignity.
The CASA-CE coalition, the APN and the P-Njango did not obtain seats in the National Assembly, which in the 2022-2027 legislature will have 220 deputies.
