n Journal of African Elections - Prospects for the promotion of a culture of political tolerance in Lesotho

Volume 7, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1609-4700


The main aim of this paper is to examine the problems and opportunities facing Lesotho in institutionalising a culture of political tolerance - an indispensable requirement in an emerging democracy. These problems and opportunities are discussed in the context of an assessment of the challenges of consolidating democratic governance in the country. Sustainable democratic governance must be based on a strong foundation of tolerance of the diverse views and perspectives of all major stakeholders, particularly political parties. This is even more relevant in the current context, where the country must manage the challenges of the post-2007 election environment.
