In newsletter no. 5/2012 you can read about a number of important elections that will take place during the fall of 2012: In Belarus, Ukraine, Venezuela and Georgia.
Hopes run high that the elections in Georgia will be entirely up to international standards. Expectations are also raised that the (almost) united opposition in Ukraine will breathe fresh life into the country’s dwindling democracy and that Henrique Capriles win the presidential elections in Venezuela. Though, the hopes are low for the elections in Belarus, where President Lukashenko is further cementing his authoritarian regime.
