Luanda – The National Electoral Commission (CNE) will be making partnerships with legally recognised national and international organisations, based on criteria defined and approved by the institution, in view of the current electoral process.
The information was given on Thursday by the spokeswoman of the CNE, Júlia Ferreira, who spoke to the press at the end of the 11th plenary ordinary session of the institution, held in the capital city.
According to the official, the selection of the civil society organisations was done on the basis of the criteria of organisational capacity, whereas for the international organisations the criterion is that they must be legally operating in Angola.
“Having into account that our work will take place in the whole of the national territory, the criteria of competence, technical and organisational capacity were the defined premises to chose the civil society associations and organisations”, she explained.
Júlia Ferreira also revealed that the personnel that will be working on the electoral and civic education will be using the country’s vernacular languages whenever necessary.
