The information was released this Wednesday to Angop, by the director of the Information Technologies office of the Ministry of Territory Planning and Housing, Mateus Garcia, who has not yet announced the television channel that will broadcast the draw.

According to the official, the draw will be made using a computational algorithm (software developed by Angolan technicians), which met the application criteria.

The algorithm, the director defined that is a sequence of steps that has been translated into computational codes, aiming to choose, at random, the candidates according to the number of available houses.

However, according to the source, the draw must obey the principle of randomness, objectivity and transparency, in compliance with article 4 of law 5, of 27 May, the Law on Gaming Activity.

As a result, seven draws will be held, of which, a draw for the urban lease modality, with the typologies of apartment T3, detached villa and semi-detached house.

The same process will be done for the other two modalities: purchase in resolvable property and prompt payment.

“The respective draws will be carried out sequentially, that is, after the first draw is made, a report or list containing the codes / numbers of all the winners will be printed, which will later be signed by the team in service”, he explained.

The code / number to be drawn is what the candidates received by message at the time of registration.

According to the director-general of the Games Supervision Institute, Tito Cambanje, in an interview with the newspaper Expansão, the luck will be defined by the “tombola system", in which will be the numbers and the cards that go out to see who receives the house.

The tombola will include 157,431 candidates, who will compete for 2,390 houses available for free sale to the public.

After the draw, the list of winners will be published in the Jornal de Angola newspaper, in the Government Portal and social networks, and the names of the people must be safeguarded to avoid exposure.

The relevant element in this process has to do with the fact that the entity that organized the registrations is not part of the commission in charge of preparing the draw.

Meanwhile, the Imogestin state company will only make available the candidates bar codes, in an operation whose actor is the computer device that will determine the recipients of the houses.
