Mozambique: 2009 Assembly of the Republic national results

Updated January 2010

The election was held on 28 October 2009. The results were confirmed by the Constitutional Council on 27 December 2009.

Participation in the 2009 election: The National Electoral Commission (CNE) published the lists of candidates that met the requirements of the electoral law piecemeal on 5 and 6 September 2009 and many candidates were disqualified because the legally required supporting documentation had not been supplied and, as a result, many candidate lists were rejected because they lacked the minimum number of candidates required by law. See 2009 Party candidate lists for Assembly of the Republic election for details.
