Electoral pledge by Lesotho political parties


Last 21 February the Christian Council of Lesotho (CCL) gathered the main candidates of the political parties for a moment of prayer in preparation for this Saturday's elections. At the end they were invited to sign, once again, the pledge sign before the last national elections celebrated in 2012. 

I thank the CCL for giving me a copy of the pledge.

"We, the political parties of Lesotho:

Mindful of the legacy of nationhood and the values of statesmanship bequeathed us by Moshoeshowe I and the founders of this nation;

Desirous of assuring all Basotho of our dedication to democracy, the rule of law, and the conduct of peaceful elections;

Hereby pledge:

To honor the Constitution and laws of Lesotho;

To honor the institutions of governance of Lesotho;

To observe the Electoral Code of Conduct;

To accept the outcomes of the 28 February 2015 election when certified free, fair and credible by independent observers.

Signed this 21st February 2015


Thanks to the CCL for a copy of the pledge!

Last year, the Lesotho Catholic Bishops Conference issued a pastoral statement called "A call for peace in our country" which can be downloaded by clicking HERE. It is worth read it.
