Angola is as yet reconstructing its nation since the end of a 27-year common war in 2002. Battling between the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), drove by Jose Eduardo DOS SANTOS, and the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA), drove by Jonas SAVIMBI, took after autonomy from Portugal in 1975. Peace appeared to be fast approaching in 1992 when Angola held national races, yet battling grabbed again in 1993. Up to 1.5 million lives may have been lost - and 4 million individuals relocated - amid the more than a quarter century of battling. SAVIMBI's demise in 2002 finished UNITA's insurrection and solidified the MPLA's hang on force. President DOS SANTOS pushed through another constitution in 2010; decisions held in 2012 saw him introduced as president.
