While the Paper's evidence suggests that the incumbent party Frelimo and its candidate, Filipe Nyusi, has a good prospect of being re-elected, that evidence is discussed considering other accounts.

This study evaluates the rule of law covering more than a decade of performance of Mozambique electoral democracy using Afrobarometer public opinion data and an initial exploration of expert opinion data from the Worldwide Governance Indicators. The report provides a valuable baseline study to monitor the performance of Sustainable Development Goal 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions) in Mozambique. The study reveals that demand and supply of the rule of law in the country is widespread but low and declining. Mozambicans are likely to demand for the rule of law and view that they are being supplied with the rule of law in 22 (63 percent) out of 35 indicators. However the likelihood is of shallow levels and levels declining over time.
