Learning activity details

Elections are a process engaged by a group of people to select their leaders. However, this simple process has in many ways resulted in clashes, injuries, wars and even deaths in many countries around the globe. The recent happenings in Kenya and Cote D’Ivoire remain fresh in the minds of people. It comes as a surprise to many why people allow themselves to be torn into pieces and denied of the harmony that has always existed.

This project hopes to help students explain peaceful elections, identify the benefits of peaceful elections and identify the various ways of ensuring peaceful elections. Peaceful elections are a necessity for development.
