UNITA announced this Saturday, in Luanda, that it had delivered two criminal complaints to the Attorney General’s Office (PGR), for alleged violation of the electoral law, in the context of the August 24 election.
During a rally, in the municipality of Talatona, the candidate of this political formation for President of the Republic, Adalberto Costa Júnior, explained that the complaints were directed to the National Electoral Commission (CNE) and the Ministry of Territory Administration (MAT), without, however, specifying the dates.
According to the party leader, UNITA considers the non-publication of the electoral roll, thirty days before the date of the elections, and the lack of auditing of the file of older citizens, by these institutions, as “serious violations of the process”. .
In his view, the publication of electoral rolls would allow voters to identify their place of voting, while “auditing the file would make it easier to remove the names of deceased citizens”.
In this regard, he reiterated the observance of respect for the Constitution and the law, with a view to holding free, fair and transparent elections.
He defended the need for party voters to monitor the progress of the process on polling day, remaining “500 meters away from polling stations”, after exercising their right to choose, in a “kind of inspector”.
Last July, UNITA had submitted a complaint to the CNE about the alleged irregularities in the process referred to above, the latter having rejected the allegations of the second largest political force in Parliament.
At the time, the CNE justified that “if citizens are dead, they will not vote”.
The rally was preceded by a car march, which began in the old market of Roque Santeiro, in the urban district of Sambizanga.
