Sub-Saharan Africa ‘Freedom and Democracy’ Rankings Up

Sub-Saharan African countries have seen major advances in freedom and democracy, says ‘Freedom in the World 2013’ report

Sub-Saharan African countries have seen major advances in freedom and democracy, according to the report ‘Freedom in the World 2013’ presented in the European Parliament.

The report by United States-based NGO, Freedom House, report marks the seventh consecutive year in which countries with declines outnumbered those with improvements.

The report notes that over the past year, three countries; Lesotho, Sierra Leone and Senegal, have moved from ‘partly free’ to ‘free’. It adds that Lesotho’s political rights indicators improved because, despite pre-election violence, it held free and fair parliamentary elections that resulted in a peaceful rotation of power.
