PresidentDUMA BOKO AND UDC EMERGE AS THE PEOPLE’S CHOICE

If the elections were to be called today President Ian Khama and the ruling Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) would lose power.

An opinion poll carried out by The Voice last week has revealed that Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) President Duma Boko is currently in the lead with 48% of the popular vote.

A paltry 21% of the poll participants voted for the ruling party President Ian Khama behind the BCP President Dumelang Saleshando with 29%.

The drastic reduction in public support for the President comes at a time when discontent over the current state of a nation experiencing unprecedented levels of power outages and water rationing is running high.

The poll also placed the UDC as the party of choice in pole position with 47% of those taking part voting for the opposition party.

BCP came second with 36%whilst BDP came a distant third with 13%. (4% of the votes were spoiled).

Over 1000 voters took part in the poll but a number of additional votes were discounted due to multiple entries.

None of the parties was without those who purchased bulk text message bundles to vote several times in an attempt to influence the poll results.

Technology however came to our rescue as we eliminated those who voted more than once.

BCP fared worse than the other parties in this regard with one supporter voting over 15 times for their President.

Readers were asked to vote via SMS and will have another chance to express their opinion in this week’s poll on page 17.

    I don’t know what you were smoking, The Voice! This poll is absolute rubbish and doesn’t at all reflect the reality! Wait for October to see what I mean.
