Former president Goodluck Jonathan has arrived Johannesburg ahead of South Africa’s national and provincial elections.
Jonathan who led the Election Observation Mission of the Electoral Institute for Sustainable Democracy in Africa disclosed this on his Twitter handle.
According to him, democracy has indeed turned the corner in Africa.
“Democracy has indeed turned the corner in Africa with many nations holding periodic and peaceful elections which put in the hands of the people the power to choose their leaders,” he said.
General elections will be held in South Africa on 8 May 2019 to elect a new National Assembly and provincial legislatures in each province. They will be the sixth elections held since the end of apartheid in 1994 and will determine who will become the next President of South Africa.
Incumbent President Cyril Ramaphosa will lead the ruling African National Congress, with the party attempting to retain its majority status and secure Ramaphosa a full term in office as president; his predecessor, Jacob Zuma, resigned from office on 14 February 2018 and was already ineligible for a third term in office as the South African Constitution limits a president to serve a maximum of two five-year terms.
