One feature that distinguishes democracy from other forms of government is the conduct of periodic free and fair elections. Elections are critical to the survival of democracy because they avail citizens the opportunity to exercise their franchise and participate in shaping how their society is governed. Political leaders are recruited through elections hence the need to ensure citizen’s vigilance and engagement in the electoral process. The election program is structured in line with the electoral cycle.
