Angola Rejects EU Demands

Foreign minister Georges Chikoti

The government of Angola said it has rejected conditions demanded by an EU election observer mission that had been preparing to witness next month’s polls in the country.

The European team had called for free entrance to polling stations across the country during the August 23vote.

The country’s Foreign Minister Georges Chicoti said Angola has election observation deals with the African Union and the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

The foreign ministry warned that safety could be an issue if the EU observers were allowed free entry to polling stations in all 18 of Angola’s provinces.
