Americans are adept at selling their elections, but they too use dirty tricks

What you need to know:

  • Consider this. The US is a founding member of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). It usually sends election observers not just to Africa, Asia, and Latin America, but also to OSCE member states like France, UK, and Canada.
  • However, when it was reported that the OCSE was sending election observers to monitor the US election, the Big Men in states like Texas and Iowa threatened to arrest them if they stepped there.
  • Imagine Kenya, Tanzania, or Uganda threatening to arrest international election observers!

A tab on the New York Times website crowed: “Keep up with the election the whole world is watching”.
