|President Pohamba on democracy||
President Hifikepunye Pohamba in his New Year address, January 2009
The conduct of free and fair elections is the lifeblood of any democratic system. It is through elections that the electorate can express their preferences for leaders and for policy options and strategies championed by different political parties. The successful conduct of regular free and fair elections in our country at different levels over the years, therefore, speaks volumes about the strength of our young democracy.
