A parliamentary election was held Cape Verde on 6 February 2011. The African Party for the Independence of Cape Verde (PAICV), led by Prime Minister Jose Maria Neves, had been the governing party since 2001; it faced the main opposition Movement for Democracy (MpD), led by Carlos Veiga. Although technical problems prevented a prompt announcement of official results, it quickly became clear that PAICV had won a parliamentary majority, and Veiga conceded defeat on 7 February 2011. The opposition's immediate acceptance of defeat, prior to an official announcement, was viewed as a sign of the strength of democracy in Cape Verde.
