Namibia: Communist Party Boycotts Elections

19 OCTOBER 2010

THE Communist Party is boycotting next month’s local and regional elections, claiming that they will not be free and fair. In a letter to the Electoral Commission of Namibia yesterday, Harry Boesak, general secretary of the Communist Party (CP), claimed the ECN had failed to take proper charge of elections through proper training of staff and this led to several costly court cases.

Boesak said ECN Director Moses Ndjakarana should have stepped aside until after the current court case, in which some opposition parties challenged the November 2009 general elections, was finalized but instead opted to stay on and organize another election.
