Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos waves to supporters

Angola girds for political transition

  • Angolan President dos Santos will likely make good on his pledge to retire in 2018
  • He wants to be remembered fondly and to preserve his children’s privileges
  • His potential successors are well-placed to ensure those goals are met

In late August, the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), the country’s ruling party, held a congress to set strategy and select new leaders. About 2,600 delegates met for three days. They elected 361 members to the party’s central committee, which then chose a new political bureau – the party’s main collective decision-making body.

The meeting was significant because it comes at a time that both supporters and opponents acknowledge as a “transition period” for the party and the nation. The decisions made there will have a huge impact on the future of this critical country in Africa’s southwest.
