What are Namibians saying ahead of the elections?

From this Tuesday the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) will start releasing findings from the latest Afrobarometer public opinion survey. In August 2014 some 1,200 people countrywide were interviewed about their views on a range of political, economic and social matters including governance issues and their experiences of poverty and various hardships. The questions covered levels of trust in various Namibian leaders and institutions. Also included in the survey is an opinion poll about citizen's voting intentions. This is the first time such a poll has been conducted in Namibia within four months of a national election. Respondents were also asked about their views on the recent constitutional amendments and whether more consultation should have taken place. Watch out for announcements on the Afrobarometer findings in the next few weeks. The first release of Afrobarometer results, on political parties and elections, will take place on Tuesday October 28 at 10h00 at the IPPR's offices, House of Democracy, 70-72 Frans Indongo Street, WIndhoek.
