Lesotho Elections 2015

Lesotho National Assembly election was held on 28 February 2015 for all 120 seats of the Lesotho National Assembly, the lower house of the Parliament of Lesotho, after over two years delay because of the 2014 political emergency.

The final results of Lesotho National Assembly elections have uncovered no out and out victor as the rulling party barely pushed out its closest opponents, information on the website of the country’s electoral commission showed.

Occupant prime minister Thomas Thabane’s All Basotho Congress (ABC) party won 40 voting public in the end of the week survey, only three more than the Democratic Congress (DC), as the nearby race tried the solidness of a South Africa-facilitated détente taking after an endeavored overthrow by the armed force last August.

The DC’s 37 seats, alongside the staying three won by the resistance, versus the ABC’s aggregate, are insufficient for either gathering to meet the 60 in addition to one necessity for framing a free government in the southern African country.
