Survey shows electoral continuity

Swapo continues to dominate the political scene in Namibia, with strong levels of public trust and voter preference, but public tolerance of opposition parties may also be on the increase, according to the latest Afrobarometer survey.
Opposition parties continue to survive and scramble for the minor places, with the DTA and the Rally for Democracy and Progress in a close race for a distant second place behind Swapo.

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.
