The voting procedure, as expected are quite straightforward with each registered voter casting their ballots manually.

The process according to Ms. Lunga, reporting for African Peace Magazine is “you go to the table that you are assigned, give the ID or the electoral card, then they check a list with your name an phone and give you a form…the form has all the 8 candidates with the full name of the parties and pictures of their flags…MPLA and another party is the picture of their leader instead of the flag“.

All the voting centers across the streets of Angola are buzzing with electoral activities, albeit with security on standby. While the tension heightens, we can only hope for a soft landing for all Angolans.
