Situation Report: Mozambique`s 2004 General Elections, Inge Ruigrok
3 February 2005

Mozambique is often referred to as a model of economic recovery and political reconciliation, which, in comparison to many other African countries, it is. Following more than a decade of civil war, a successful peace process led to the adoption of a new constitution, which served as the basis for a democratic state. The armed opposition transformed itself into a civil political party and multiparty elections were held for the first time in 1994.
