Angola: opposition files legal action against electoral commission

Angolan biggest opposition party, Unita, says it has filed a legal challenge against the results of last week’s election that declared the ruling party, winner.

The MPLA, the party in power since 1975, won the general elections with 51.17% of the vote, while UNITA obtained 43.95%.

A senior Unita official, Faustino Mumbika, told a French news agency that the party filed a complaint against the National Electoral Commission on Thursday.

The opposition party Unita, which obtained its best result ever, rejected the provisional results, denouncing irregularities.
