POLITICAL VIOLENCE AND THE ELECTORAL PROCESS IN NIGERIA AN OVERVIEW OF THE 2007 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
The electoral process is a fundamental part of any representative democratic government. For years, the Clifford and Macpherson constitutions served as the foundation for Nigeria's western representational democracy.
