MPLA repudiates actions aimed at changing the sentiment expressed by Angolans in the elections

The MPLA repudiates discursive manifestations that contradict the immediate action of the Executive and actions that aim to change the sentiment expressed by Angolans in the elections and says that it will never align itself with parties that do not respect the Constitution.


The Political Bureau of the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), in a statement, considers any discursive manifestations that contradict the Executive's immediate action, embodied in working more and communicating better, to be counterproductive.

At the moment, says the MPLA, in the note consulted this Wednesday by Lusa, it is focused on the effective implementation of the Government program voted in the polls, with the fundamental premise of improving the population's living conditions.

The MPLA "urges all Angolan people to vehemently repudiate all explicit and veiled actions aimed at altering the sentiment expressed by Angolans at the polls, and to oppose narratives fraught with intentions that attack national sovereignty and its holders, as well as the country's development dynamics".

The MPLA won the August 24 elections and elected 124 deputies against the 90 of the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA), which despite contesting the results, its deputies occupied the seats in parliament and its leader was invested as advisor to the President, João Lourenço.

Adalberto Costa Júnior, president of UNITA, said last Saturday, at the end of a march called by his party, that he will use his power as adviser to João Loureço to "really advise" him and promised to work side by side with the President " for Angola and for the Angolans".

The president of UNITA also promised to "fight within the institutions of the State" for the democratization of the country and to carry out several street demonstrations.

In response to the speech of the UNITA leader, the MPLA states that "it will never align with political forces that do not respect the Constitution and the law, promote subversion, incite acts of violence and vandalism, refuse to respect the popular will, reaching the point of not to congratulate the victor, whom they now claim the right to invite to walk side by side".

"The MPLA, as a serious party with State responsibilities, will walk, yes, with the political forces that defend patriotism and national unity, promote peace and stability and contribute to the strengthening of democracy and the development of Angola", reads up in the communiqué.

The MPLA Political Bureau also considers "serious" the "insulting speeches of incitement to subversion, made by those who in the National Assembly swore before the Angolan people to comply with and enforce the laws" of the country.

Appeals for militants, sympathizers and friends of the MPLA to "keep calm and serenity, refraining from provocation" and letting the competent authorities "respond with legal force to the irresponsible role that certain political actors evoke for themselves", also from the note.

The "comrades" party also urges the general population to adopt a form of citizenship "in which the protection of individual and collective rights is elevated, in order to preserve peace, stability" and "advises" acts of disrespect for authorities.
