Bill to harmonise elections passed

The Assembly of the Republic, on 8 April passed a short bill that will allow the general (presidential and parliamentary) and provincial elections scheduled for this year to be held on the same date, and in the same polling stations.

The three elections will be held in the same polling stations, with the same electoral registers. There will be three transparent ballot boxes, one for each election, in each of the polling stations.

The bill was passed by the 150 deputies present from the ruling Frelimo Party. The debate was boycotted by the opposition Renamo-Electoral Coalition, who refused to discuss harmonising the elections separately from their own proposals for completely changing the electoral system.

Meanwhile, the Mozambican government has announced that this year's voter registration period will run from 15 June to 29 July throughout the country. This is an update of the existing electoral registers.

The government also announced that Mozambicans living abroad, who have two seats in the Assembly of the Republic, will be registered as voters from 10 to 29 July.
