Competitive Elections : successes and failures

A panoramic observation of elections in French-speaking black Africa
reveals a frightful drift which has undeniably erased the progress of the
new constitutional order initiated in the 1990s. One can only hope that
this trend corresponds to the electoral choice of one particular political
clan and that it will not last as long as the Roman Empire ! As a consequence,
it is necessary to try to lift off the curse that seems to have been
attached to elections and according to which they are either manipulated
by those who pretend to support them or supported by those who
seem to betray them (one often hears that mass slaughters or assassinations
reinforce the value of elections in French-speaking black Africa,
among other things). This might be the only possibility for the political
or democratic transition initiated in the 1990s to reach completion and to
make sure that the much expected democracy in black French-speaking
Africa becomes a reality instead of remaining a pipe-dream.
