Lesotho’s Early Vote to End Political Crisis

Lesotho's leaders are planning to head to the polls early in a bid to restore political order

A South African official states that, Lesotho's leaders are planning to head to the polls early in a bid to restore political order following an attempted coup and stalled peace talks between deadlocked political parties.

South Africa's minister of international relations and cooperation, Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, has announced that as a result of the coalition government not being ‘fully functional’ Lesotho's leaders are planning to ‘shorten the mandate, of the coalition’.

Nkoana-Mashabane recommends the country to now focus on ‘free, fair and incident free democratic elections for a fresh mandate’ in the upcoming elections to be held in 2017.
