The Partido da Aliança Juventude, Operários e Camponeses de Angola(PAJOCA)
was founded in 1991 and is now a small Angolan party. Following the 2008
Angolan parliamentary elections it failed to gain any of the 220 seats in
parliament, obtaining only 12 681 votes (0.24%). The Chr. Michelsen
Institute of Norway reports that:
The Partido de Aliança Juventude, Operáriaos e Camponeses de Angola (Party of the Alliance of Youth, Workers and Farmers of Angola) was formed by a group of soldiers that split away from the MPLA when the country turned “turbo-capitalist”. The party still includes many of the army rank and file. The party president (and outgoing deputy) is Alexandre Sebastião André. The party sets itself apart from the MPLA not only in terms of programmatic content, but in the ‘procedure’ of how politics should be conducted.

On the National Electoral
official website its flag the same as the one shown above but with several
variant details, such as the shade of green of the bottom stripe (much lighter)
and the exact rendering of the pictorial elements. This image allows us to
identify the device below the star as a fountain pen.
