Things are not exactly going to plan:
- Earlier on Friday the head of the EU mission, the Italian Luisa Morgantini, called the election “a total disaster” . The same assessment was made by the leader of the opposition, Isaias Samakuva, who called for a re-run of the election in Luanda, where of the 584 polling stations 320 didn't function.
- Later on the day, Morgantini explained that she was referring exclusively to the polling stations she visited and not to the entire election process as “disastrous”.
- Meanwhile, the National Electoral Commission announced that polling stations will be opened on Saturday and the vote will continue.
