Angola’s electoral commission went into talks on Sunday to finalise results of last week’s disputed poll that handed victory to the MPLA which has ruled the country for nearly a half-a-century. In a notice to journalists, the commission said its members were to “begin the process of tabulation of the definitive results”. On Saturday night five of the 16 member commission threatened not to sign off the partial results that have given People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) 51.07 percent of the vote. The main opposition the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA) received 44.05 percent. Speaking on the sidelines of the funeral of the former strongman Jose Eduardo dos Santos in Luanda, UNITA leader Adalberto Costa Junior said he will only accept results that match the outcome of their own tally. “We have already presented complaints to the electoral commission where we understand that the results do not conform to our count and where we think we have obtained more” parliamentary seats, he told reporters after attending the funeral.
