Abstract

Review of the year 2014 in Mozambique. The ruling Frelimo party was re-elected in national elections on 15 October. The constitutional limit to two terms for a president in office forced Armando Guebuza to step down, although he remained head of the Frelimo party. Renamo agreed to a cease-fire in exchange for changes to the election law, but retained its militia. Renamo head Afonso Dhlakama gained 37% of the vote in the presidential elections, but claimed he had won and threatened a return to violence. Donor relations dominated foreign policy and the aid partners and agencies remained critically engaged in their relations with government.
