Accordingly, with such consensus, the Head of State is now in position to issue the official decree that summons the 2022 elections, which, for the first time, will include voting for the Angolan Diaspora.
The first democratic elections took place in Angola in 1992, following the signing of the Bicesse Peace Accords. In that process roughly 4.8 million Angolans went to the ballot.
The delivery of the candidacies of political parties and coalition of parties running in the general elections of 24 August, to the Constitutional Court (CC), will be made by scheduling, to confer greater dignity, comfort and convenience to those involved.
According to the Director of the Constitutional Court’s Political Parties Office, Mauro Alexandre Quitumbo, a Digital Platform for Scheduling was created for this reason.
Quitumbo explained that the applicants have the possibility of choosing the day and time they want to deliver the candidacy processes, avoiding constraints such as having more than one political formation at the same time.
For this, he said, the platform’s credentials were given beforehand to the party representatives, who will be able to use them in an easier way.
In this sense, without revealing the name of the political party, he made it known that the first appointment has already been made for Wednesday 8 June.
He also said that this innovation will give dynamism to the process of reception, justification and validation of the candidates.
The period for presentation of applications, which began today, will run until 25 June.
