The mission of European Union election experts is already in Angola and was received on Monday by the president of the Constitutional Court (TC), Laurinda Cardoso, according to a note from the TC communication office.
The European mission arrived in Angola last Thursday and is headed by the European Union Ambassador to Angola, Jeannette Seppen.
It also has the presence of Tânia Maria Magalhães Marques and Alexandre Gray, both responsible for the European External Action Service (SEAE).
During the audience with Laurinda Cardoso, the European mission received explanations about the tasks carried out by the Constitutional Court, within the framework of its attributions regarding the Angolan electoral process.
Counselor judges Gilberto Magalhães and Conceição Sango also participated in the meeting.
The Angolan general elections, the fifth ballot in the country’s political history, are scheduled for August 24th and eight political groups, campaigning since July 24th, are chasing votes across the country.
More than 14 million voters are registered on the electoral roll, including around 22,000 Angolans residing abroad.
