Mozambique: Electoral management bodies
The task of planning, supervising and executing elections, as well as dispute adjudication and resolution is in the hands of a number of interlocked bodies:
- The National Electoral Commission (CNE) is responsible for supervising voter registration, the conduct of elections and holding of referenda.
- The Technical Secretariat for the Administration of Elections (STAE) acts as the executive arm of the CNE.
- The Provincial and municipal or district electoral commissions are ad hoc structures created to execute electoral operations for the CNE.
- The Constitutional Council supervises electoral process, verifies presidential candidates, hears petition appeals, validates and declares final results of elections.
