Lesotho: stolen election

Idland blogs about election results in Lesotho:
It is disturbingly impressive to read how Lesotho's two major political parties have exploited the electoral rules to earn themselves about a third more seats in parliament than they were due.

    It is really disturbing because they do not want to accept the defeat. Since independece it has been the norm not to accept the election results in Lesotho and that alone really is taking us backwards. Politicians must learn to respect people’s will. Amen.
