Cape Verde: Three hours waiting to vote

Eileen Barbosa [pt] reports that the elections in Cape Verde yesterday were marked by long queues and people's good will to attend to the polls. “Personally, I found it quite inadmissible, but many people went ahead and… gave up! Who can blame them, more than three-hour wait on a Sunday… Hopefully, this has been the first and last time it happened!”
