Young Africans and the African Voting System 

FACT FINDER - Elections - Voting disparity in Africa
FACT FINDER – Elections – Voting disparity in Africa

*South African youths would prefer younger leaders to inspire them to go to the polls and vote. That’s exactly what happened in Senegal in West Africa. The youths helped vote into office their young leader, Bissirou Faye.

Young Africans prefer younger leaders who can motivate them to head to the polls and effect a change. Nigerian youths were disappointed with the outcome of last year’s presidential election saying that it wasn’t a reflection of the people’s choice.

It was a year ago on 29th May that Nigeria’s president Bola Tinubu was sworn in as president and it happened to be the the same date this year that South Africans went to the polls. Many unhappy youths in South Africa did not vote hence making ANC lose its hold on its majority.

Senegal’s President Faye’s role as a leader of hope will enable him to take the lead, recognizing his role to bring hope to young people throughout Africa and motivate them to go out and vote in their respective countries where democracy works.

Afterwards, the youths are the future and their future starts now. They want reasons why they should go to the polls and vote.
