What kind of government does Angola have?

User Avatar
Angola is run under the constitution of 1975 as amended. After many years of one-party Marxist rule, Angola is now a struggling multiparty democracy. Its executive branch is headed by the president, popularly elected for a five-year term, who serves as both chief of state and head of government. The prime minister and council of ministers are appointed by the president. Angola has a unicameral 220-seat National Assembly, whose members are elected by proportional vote for four-year terms, and a judicial branch with a supreme court. Administratively, the country is divided into 18 provinces.

Who was the President of Angola in 2011?

User Avatar
José Eduardo dos Santos was the President of Angola in 2011. He first took this position on 1979 September 10 after the death of the first president Agostinho Neto. Dos Santos was officially elected by the people on 1992 September 30 after an attempted reconciliation in the Angolan civil war. Unfortunately the results of the general election were not accepted by the opposition and the civil war continued. Another presidential election would not take place until September 5, 2008, where dos Santos was again re-elected. As of 2008 August, general elections were to take place every 4 years. This has since been changed to every 5 years. The 2010 January constitution abolished the post of Prime Minister and gave the power to the president, who would be the leader of the party with the most seats in the assembly. Dos Santos, was re-elected as leader of his party in 2016, while parliamentary elections take place in 2017. In 2016, he has announced his intention to step down as leader in 2018.
