Last year Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed took a big step toward stabilizing the Horn of Africa when he agreed to sign a long-disputed peace agreement with Eritrea - one that previous Ethiopian governments had refused to sign beca of the border demarcation within the agreement would seem to leave Ethiopia to blame for sparking the conflict in 1998 that eventually caused as many as a quarter of a million casualties.

Analyse à chaud des élections de mai 2019 en Afrique du Sud

Abdelhak Bassou | Posted : May 13, 2019

A la question de savoir qui a gagné les élections du 8 mai en Afrique du Sud, une seule réponse s’impose : L’ANC. Cette réponse suppose qu’il y a un perdant et conduit, donc, à une deuxième question : Qui a perdu les élections de Mai 2019 en Afrique du Sud ? Aussi étonnant que cela puisse paraitre, la réponse est, là aussi, l’ANC. 

Le Soudan pris dans le sillage de la crise du Golfe

Sara Mokaddem | Posted : May 10, 2019

Riyad et Abou Dhabi s'inquiètent de la crise politique et institutionnelle à Khartoum. Appelant à la "stabilité" et à une "transition pacifique", ils surveillent de très près la situation. Entre temps, la Turquie et le Qatar, qui soutiennent les Frères musulmans, restent en retrait. Le Soudan joue un rôle clé pour Riyad et ses alliés, tant dans la lutte contre les Houthis, au Yémen, que dans leur politique d'endiguement vis-à-vis de l'Iran, principal ennemi de l'Arabie Saoudite au Moyen-Orient.

El Mostafa Rezrazi | Posted : May 09, 2019

In Japan, the new Emperor Naruhito 徳仁 was inaugurated last week as a successor to his father Emperor Akihito明仁, who decided to abdicate about two years ago in favour of his son for health reasons.

The Japanese people have welcomed the event with mixed feelings, the joy of the enthronement of the young emperor Emperor Naruhito, mixed with despair for missing the warmth and sympathy of Emperor Akihito, whose popularity with the Empress Michiko was characterized by being the couple who offers support and comfort whenever a tragedy occurs.

L’ANC au scrutin du 8 mai : Analyse d’un échec attendu

Abdelhak Bassou | Posted : May 07, 2019

A quelques heures des élections générales en Afrique du Sud, je ne peux m’empêcher, comme à mon habitude, de me jeter à l’eau en tentant un pronostic. Je ne pourrais me vanter d’inventer la roue en avançant que le Congrès national africain (ANC) gagnerait ces élections et que le président Cyril Ramaphosa continuerait à présider aux destinées du pays au lendemain du 8 mai prochain.

The 2019 Indian Elections: What to expect?

Neelam Deo | Posted : May 06, 2019

Looked at from afar, the most amazing thing about the ongoing election in India may be the numbers involved. Over 900 million citizens are eligible to vote and voter turnout is hovering between 60% to 70%. The election to 543 seats in the Lok Sabha (Lower House) is being conducted in seven phases with 12 million officials deployed in 1.7 million voting booths. The first phase of polling was held on April 11 and the concluding one will be on May 19. The votes will be counted on May 23 and the results announced the same day because the use of Electronic Voting Machines facilitates rapid tallying.

Youssef Tobi | Posted : May 03, 2019

France appears to be relying on force to patch up problems in Africa, and particularly in Libya. None of this is compatible with President Macron’s lofty foreign policy declarations.
