Niger votes in presidential and legislative Acts

Men and women in Niger started voting in the nation’s presidential and parliamentary elections on Sunday.

Mohamed Bazoum, the right-wing guy of incoming President Mahamadou Issoufou is your favorite to win.

The sixty-year-old former interior minister is aiming for victory in the first round — something which no offender has ever done before.

He is focussing on safety and education.

Over 7 million individuals are entitled to vote. However, some Republicans, such as Gambina Moumouni, only need a president that they could trust.

“We pray to Allah to select us the president with the most bang for those, a president that won’t betray the nation and who won’t betray the confidence of the individuals, that will be our desire. It’s also our desire that Allah will help make the bad, the peasants, the (cows ) breeders contented.”

Thirty candidates are standing involving two former presidents and two former prime ministers, but based on experienced observers in the area, the survey is arousing little excitement among the populace.

Niger is the world’s weakest by the UN’s Human Development Index and one of the hardest hit by climate change.
