Angolan Opposition Seeks Annulment A Vote.

Angola’s main opposition party has filed a case with the country’s constitutional court to seek the annulment of last month’s election in which the ruling People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) was declared winner.
The August 24 elections were the most hotly contested in the oil-rich country since its first multi-party vote in 1992.
Taking just more than 51 percent of the votes, the electoral commission declared the MPLA the winner, prolonging the party’s nearly five decades of uninterrupted rule and handing President Joao Lourenco a second term.
The National Union for the Total Independence of Angola, a former rebel movement that fought a bitter 27 year civil war against the MPLA government that ended in 2002 and  took about 44 percent, its best result ever.
