The 2013 Elections Guide is a new initiative launched by the Wilson Center’s Africa Program with the aim of keeping you informed of all national elections taking place in Africa. Through research, analysis, and election data, the Elections Guide is a resource for anyone interested and presents key information in a comprehensive and objective way.
This 2013 Elections Guide features all of the presidential and legislative elections this year, covering election cycles in twelve countries for a total of fifteen. Notably, there are entries for President Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta’s electoral conquest after a year of instability in Mali, President Robert Mugabe’s successful re-election bid in Zimbabwe, as well as future presidential contests in Guinea-Bissau and Madagascar.
Feel free to use the interactive map to access each country’s profile and subscribe to elections updates to stay informed.
