The ruling party of Angola’s president, José Eduardo dos Santos, was assured of another five years in office after it won 74% of the national vote in elections on Friday.

With 73% of the votes counted, the state election commission said on Sunday that the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), which has been in power for 32 years, had gained a large majority. The MPLA will remain in control of Angola’s 220-seat legislature, although its margin of victory is down from the 82% that it won in 2008.
