Angola goes to the polls on August 23 and the ruling People's Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) is fielding a different candidate for the first time in 38 years.

Sixty two-year-old Joao Lourenco steps into the shoes of Africa's second longest-serving leader Jose Eduardo Dos Santos, who took office in 1979, but will is not running for president of the country in this year’s election, though he retains control of the powerful ruling party.

Lourenco will face Dos Santos' long-time rival and leader of the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA), Isaias Samakuva.

UNITA won just 18% in the last election in 2012 and the People's Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) won a landslide 72%.

For the first time in four decades, the nation is looking forward to having a new president, as polls open on August 23.
