Vice President calls on university students to actively participate in electoral registration

Caxito – The Angolan Vice President, Manuel Domingos Vicente, last Friday in Caxito City, northern Bengo Province, urged the academic community and partners to participate actively in the electoral registration process, in order to be able to exercise the right to vote.

Manuel Vicente spoke at the opening of the 2017 higher education academic year, which will run under the motto “For a higher education of quality, let us promote the culture of merit”.

He recommended that each member of the academic community feel like an active mobilising tool of citizens, for the exercise of this right and duty of citizenship.

The electoral registration process, which began in August last year, is to end on March 31 with over eight million potential voters registered in the country.

The general elections are expected to be held in August 2017.
