DS Opinions

Democracy is defined as the rule of the people, by the people and for the people. This therefore means that whoever occupies the presidency, which we consider as the most powerful office in the country, should, first, be given the mandate by the people.

The electorate in the United States of America on Tuesday, November 8, 2016, voted for change by electing Donald Trump of the Republican Party as the 45th President of the most powerful nation in the world.

Yesterday’s ruling by the Supreme Court ordering the Electoral Commission give all disqualified presidential aspirants the opportunity to rectify anomalies in their nomination papers, perhaps, brings to closure the legal tussles surrounding the December 7 elections.
