Luanda’s FNLA first secretary , Maria da Conceição Boaventura, told Angop the party’s field activity was conducted by three brigades of 25 members each.

She said the purpose of the campaign was to persuade the voters in those localities to massively turn out on the 23 August election to cast their ballot.

In the 2012 election, FNLA came fifth with 65,163 votes, earning it two parliamentary seats.

Six political parties are geared to the 23 August election.  They are the ruling MPLA party and opposition UNITA, PRS, FNLA,  APN and CASA-CE coalition.
