Angola: A human rights agenda for the new government in Angola

, Index number: AFR 12/6978/2017

On 23 August 2017, Angola will hold presidential elections to replace President José Eduardo dos Santos of MPLA who has been in power for nearly four decades. During this period the country has seen systematic and serious violations of human rights. In the lead up to these elections, it is important to remind Angolan authorities of the many human rights violations that have been committed and continue to be committed, and call on the coming Government to build an atmosphere in which civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights and the rule of law prevail.
