Angolan government decrees point tolerance on August 24 – Africa

The Angolan government decreed point tolerance throughout the national territory on the day of the general elections, scheduled for August 24, to allow all voters to participate in the vote.

According to a note from the Civil House of the President of the Republic, the decision was taken taking into account that the date coincides with a normal working day (Wednesday) and “the participation of all voters in this exercise of Citizenship and Democracy”.

The point tolerance “does not cover workers who work in shifts, without prejudice to the obligation of these workers to be dismissed for the time necessary to exercise their right to vote, under the terms of the legislation in force”, adds the note.

Eight political groups compete in the August 24 general elections, the fifth in Angola’s history, in which more than 14 million voters will be able to participate, including, for the first time, residents abroad.
