In order to persuade the voters to join the scheme, the party launched direct contacts with residents presenting the main health sector guidelines based on its governing programme.

The head of UNITA for mobilisation campaign, Nelito Ekuikui, mentioned the construction of infrastructures to meet the curative and preventive health needs in the country as one of the measures UNITA intends to implement.

He also announced the free medical care for all Angolans and promised construction of hospitals, health posts for the community, and the training of doctors and nurses.

In the 2012 election won by the ruling MPLA party, UNITA got 32 seats in Parliament.

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

The contesting parties are currently engaged in an electoral campaign launched on 23 July going until 21 August this year. 22 August is a free day for a reflection ahead of the voting.
