ATLANTA - In the run-up to Lesotho's national elections on Feb. 28, The Carter Center encourages all political parties and leaders to ensure a peaceful electoral process and respect for the democratic process.

At the invitation of Lesotho's Independent Election Commission, a Carter Center representative visited Lesotho on Feb. 17 to explore opportunities to support the strengthening of democratic institutions following the national elections. While the Center is not able to deploy international election observers for the elections themselves because of the short period remaining before the elections, the Center extends its best wishes to the citizens of Lesotho for successful, credible, and peaceful elections.
