Election cycles in Africa comes with a number of revelations about the political system and psyche of the people. 

In 2018, countries such as Cameroon, Zimbabwe, Madagascar and Mali held their elections, some of which were marred with controversies and others ended up with new leaders. The Democratic Republic of Congo is at the counting phase of the election, marking the end of Joseph Kabila’s rule. 

In 2019, a number of African countries will have their presidential election and may result in new leaders.  Libya’s case is super special in 2019 for it will hold a referendum first before a presidential election, with the UN and international community hoping it will be done by June to set the country back on path of progress and stability.
