The MPs of the ruling MPLA and opposition UNITA voted in favour of the MP’s removal , while coalition CASA-CE and  PRS and FNLA parties abstained.

The National Assembly’s Ethics, Decorum and Mandates Commission had opened an internal disciplinary process against Tchizé dos Santos in September this year following her prolonged absence from plenary sessions.

Angola’s National Assembly rules that an MP can lose term in case he/she exceeds three consecutive absences from the National Assembly’s meetings.
