Ana Gómez analyzed this Friday in SIC Notícias the role of international election observers in Angola, who positively assessed the process and stated that it was nothing more than “electoral tourism”.
This observation does not inspire the slightest confidence, it is electoral tourism, because the observation of the electoral process is carried out not only on voting day.
Ana Gomez explained that “The electoral process starts much earlier, you need to look at the conditions of the voter list, how the campaign is organized, how the distribution of media times is organized, and then an integral and essential part for giving confidence to citizens, namely, trust in the counting process, vote aggregation”.
I ask, did any of the observers present there, invited by the Government, bother to spend at least half an hour in this debriefing center?
Ana Gomes also highlighted the fact that the European Union election observation mission was denied. One “A mission that has rules, that follows the whole process, that follows the counting process very well. There is not a single European Union monitoring mission that does not have a certain number of employees in the counting center.”.
