2018 elections in the DRC: AFRIC observes the first democratic transition

The democratic Republic of Congo has just crisscrossed a very critical stage in its history; a democratic election which has been expected since 2016 when Joseph Kabila’s second term came to an end. The three times postponed election had left many pondering over the fate of the country, as fear was rife that the already violence hit nation may plunge into a civil war if the results are not favorable to the masses.

Presidential elections-2018 in Madagascar: a diary of monitoring mission

I was fortunate to take part along with AFRIC in the election monitoring mission in Madagascar, which took place on 7th of November.
36 international observers from all over the world represented AFRIC election monitoring mission at this milestone in Madagascar. Why was it a milestone?
After the political and economic crisis of 2001 and 2009, the Malagasy state counterpoised some stability and economic growth. Reports from IMF (International Monetary Fund) and the World Bank show that the current economic situation is quite favorable. That's why the choice of the Malagasy people is more important now than ever.
