Background: Angola is rebuilding its country after the end of a 27-year civil war in 2002. Fighting between the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) , led by Jose Eduardo DOS SANTOS , and the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA) , led by Jonas SAVIMBI , followed independence from Portugal in 1975. Peace seemed imminent in 1992 when Angola held national elections , but UNITA renewed fighting after being beaten by the MPLA at the polls. Up to 1.5 million lives may have been lost - and 4 million people displaced - in the quarter century of fighting. SAVIMBI's death in 2002 ended UNITA's insurgency and strengthened the MPLA's hold on power. President DOS SANTOS has announced legislative elections will be held in September 2008 , with presidential elections planned for sometime in 2009.
