Mozambique: President Nyusi attends AU summit in Ethiopia
Hermenegildo Gamito - Constitutional Council's President
The Constitutional Council (CC) has rejected the appeal by Renamo, in which the party called for the annulment of results of the repeated elections in Marromeu.
In the appeal filed with the CC, Renamo sought nullity of the electoral results of the seven panels, the replacement of the actual data held by the party, the punishment of the prevaricating presidents of the Electoral Law in Marromeu and the verification of authenticity of the signatures included in the minutes and the announcement of the intermediate clearance.
In a ruling of December 10, the judges of the Constitutional Council said Renamo did not observe the principle of prior challenge and the rules of admission of the appeal.
For example, the results of the partial assessments had not been appealed.
For this reason, the Judicial Court of the District of Marromeu dismissed Renamo’s litigation appeal on interim clearance.
Moreover, the appeal filed by Renamo to the Constitutional Council reports facts that occurred in the partial and intermediate assessments and not those of the national centralisation and the general tabulation made by the National Commission of Elections.
It would be on the data obtained from the general tabulation that an appeal to the Constitutional Council could be upheld.
