Human rights group, Ditshwanelo, has called on Batswana to exercise their democratic right to vote on 16 October 2009.
Ditshwanelo wants Batswana to recognise that by casting their ballot they are exercising a human right enshrined in the country’s law and exercising the right to choose representatives of their choice.
The organisation further urges Batswana to vote consciously. It says voting based on emotional factors is not responsible voting.
“Responsible voting is aimed at the development of the country and a deepening of the country’s democratic gains and a commitment to working for a better society for future generations,” maintains Ditshwanelo.
