Moz polls peaceful - EU

2009-10-30 14:58
Maputo - The European Union (EU) election observer mission to Mozambique's elections on Friday described them as generally peaceful.

Addressing a media briefing in Maputo, European Union head of the mission Fiona Hall said the elections on Wednesday reflected constructive messages by political contestants.

However, she said the rejection of several parties' lists for the legislative and provincial elections, mainly as a result of the complexity of the electoral legal framework and some unclear procedures, had restricted voter choice at a local level.

"Moreover, basic measures meant to ensure full transparency of the process are still missing. These include full access to candidates' lists and the publication of numbers of registered voters per polling station."

The EU mission, which was in Mozambique since September 22, had 131 observers from 24 EU member states as well as Canada, Switzerland and Norway, which were deployed to all 11 provinces.
