Angolans choose new leader after four decades
Angolans have voted in a parliamentary election marking the end of nearly four decades in power for President José Eduardo Dos Santos.
Mr Dos Santos is not contesting the poll, but his party the MPLA is expected to be victorious when the results are announced later this week.
The presidency would then pass to former Defence Minister João Lourenço.
His main challenger is Isias Samakuva, from the MPLA’s rival in the 27-year civil war, Unita.
However, Mr Dos Santos, whose 38-year reign makes him the world’s second-longest serving president, will remain in control of the ruling MPLA party.
