The ruling Botswana Congress Party (BCP) has asked the Government to declare Election Day a public holiday so as to give everybody a chance to go to the polls.
The majority party is thus making its own, the drive initiated 18 months ago by the BPP minority party (20-Jul-2007) and which was drafted into law last summer (22-Aug-2008 and 27-Nov-2008).
The next legislative and presidential elections are expected to occur in October 2009.
