SADC: Pre-election assessment mission works in the country

SADC: Missão de avaliação pré-eleitoral trabalha no país

A SADC pre-election assessment mission has been in Mozambique since June 19 and will meet with electoral actors for 11 days.

The interaction with those involved in the electoral process aims to ascertain the level of readiness for the vote next October.

Called the Consultative Council's Pre-Election Assessment Goodwill Mission to the SADC region, the delegation has already been received by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Verónica Macamo.

"These meetings will feed into the production of the Mission's report, which will be delivered to the president of the SADC body. Once the document has been received by the president of Zambia, he will in turn share it with the Mozambican statesman and the National Electoral Commission," said Jennifer Chiringa, head of the SADC delegation, quoted by "O País".

Mozambique is once again holding general elections in an environment of insecurity in Cabo Delgado province, which is why it is important to hold meetings with the national security agencies.

The head of the delegation of the SADC Mission assured that during its meetings the Mission will hold meetings with the police, including the Ministry of Defense, with a view to gauging the level of security during the electoral process.
