(Update on 27 December 2010: Juz realised I should have prefaced this by saying that this post is in the spirit of ghost or macabre stories that are part of the English Christmas tradition.)

Learn from Africa. Hold a “Klingon election”

Holding a  “Klingon election” is how the BBC’s African correspondent describes a situation where the incumbent party or president uses violence, or the threat of violence, as a convenient device enabling it/him to ignore the actual election results and cling to office thanks to some expensively, externally mediated “power-sharing” arrangement. Blog post.

Seriously, watch out for a coming post on why this or military intervention will never happen here.
