Goodluck Jonathan leads African Union team to Mozambique elections

By Toby Prince

Former President Goodluck Jonathan, on Tuesday, led a team of African Union Election Observation Mission (AUEOM) to Mozambique general elections.

Nearly 13 million voters are registered in the southern African nation, though some observers warn that insecurity might keep some from voting.

Vote counting will start after polls close at 6pm local time (16:00 GMT) and is expected to continue through the night. Preliminary results are expected on Wednesday.

Tensions were high in Mozambique on the eve of elections which will likely see President Filipe Nyusi and his ruling Frelimo party maintain their grip on power amid fears the violence that marred the campaign may continue on polling day.

While Nyusi is widely expected to win a second term in Tuesday’s presidential vote, the main opposition is eyeing the opportunity for a strong performance in provincial and legislative races. The polls mark the first time provincial governors, previously appointed by the president, are elected in Mozambique.

Mr Jonathan took to Twitter on Tuesday to share the development.

“As members of the @_AfricanUnion Election Observation Mission (AUEOM) to Mozambique general elections, my team and I set out early this morning to witness the opening of the ballot in some polling stations in the capital city Maputo.”
