Elections as a tenet of democracy is
the right and power of a people to
decide who wields the helms of
authority in running the affairs of a
nation at various levels of
government by electing candidates
into political offices across the
country. It is the way by which the
choice of the majority in a State is
determined and decided. This right to
decide the forerunners of
governance is vested on the
electorate, and in order to ensure
that this right is truly guaranteed and
properly exercised, certain
parameters must be put in place to
ensure that an election is conducted
in a free, fair and credible manner,
one of which includes but is not
limited to a secured environment to
enable voters exercise their civic
rights without fear, intimidation
and/or undue influence.
