The People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), Angola’s ruling party, was declared the winner of the 2022 general elections held last week, with 51.17 percent of the votes cast, the National Electoral Commission (CNE) announced Monday.

The nation’s largest opposition party, the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA), gained 43.95 percent of the total votes cast, said the CNE.

According to the final results, the MPLA won 124 of the 220 National Assembly seats. The UNITA finished second with 90 seats in parliament.
