U.S. Congratulates Mozambique on December Elections

The United States congratulates President-elect Armando Emilio Guebuza on his victory in the December 1 and 2, 2004 election. The strong commitment of the Mozambican people to the democratic process was demonstrated by the dedication and competence with which the vast majority of the more than 60,000 polling station workers across the country performed their duties.

We urge all Mozambicans to stand united and work for the good of the country, joining President Chissano in his efforts to transition peacefully to a new government.

We look forward to working with President-elect Guebuza and members of his government in strengthening the ties that bind our two countries and in promoting the development of Mozambique.
