Angola: June 27, 2003


Former members of the Angolan UNITA rebel organization selected Isaias Ngola Samakuva as party president. Essentially, Samakuva replaces Jonas Savimbi. UNITA is well along the road to becoming a political party. UNITA has 70 parliamentary seats in the Angolan parliament (out of 223). Meanwhile, the Angolan government chose a new chief of staff. General Agostinho Sanjar Fernandes Nelumba will now run the armed forces.
