EU Observer has his doubts about "fair and free" Angolan Elections

Tuesday, September 09, 2008

Angola underwent first democratic elections in 16 years, but already many feel there is something amiss. Amidst reports that people were bussed in from neighboring Congo to vote, the opposition party is calling for a recount as additional reports of voters receiving handouts of cash, alcohol and cars from the ruling party continue to circulate. Richard Howitt is the EU Observer in Angola and was monitoring the elections first hand.
