There are important elections coming in 2011 and 2012 on the continent, including in Sudan, Nigeria, Liberia, Rwanda and Zimbabwe. Recent African elections have had charges of rampant fraud and questionable results following vote counting. However, the international community’s knee-jerk reaction has been to call for governments of national unity rather than try harder to prevent electoral problems before they occur. What should be done to facilitate free, fair and acceptable elections on the continent?
The Leon Sullivan Foundation is organizing a free webinar about elections on the continent that all CP-Africa readers are invited to participate in featuring panelists Paul Fagan, Africa Director at the International Republican Institute and Nii Akuetteh, Elections Working Group Co-Chair at the Advocacy Network for Africa.
