In an interview with Channels Television’s South African Bureau Chief, Betty Dibia, shortly before South Africans on Wednesday headed to the polls, Jonathan noted that elections can be better conducted and managed if the right things are put in place.

“The key thing about elections is the body managing the election and the security, the police. If the stakeholders, the political parties have confidence in these two organisations, then, of course, we are quite hopeful,” he noted.

Speaking on Nigeria’s electoral system, Jonathan, who expressed optimism that there can be an improvement, following his visit to other African countries said the standard will continue to improve.

“I have gone to many African nations as leader of different observation missions including the Commonwealth, African Union, National Democratic Institute, and of course EISA and I am quite impressed and hopeful that the standard of managing of our elections will continue to improve.

“I believe that if we improve our standard of elections, we will get to that point where people, using their vote, can remove a leader they feel is not leading them well”.

According to reports, despite anger over corruption scandals, sluggish growth, and record unemployment, South Africans are certain to vote for the ruling ANC.
