PHK votes happy about national stability

24 Oct 2014

Outgoing Vice President, Dr Ponatshego Kedikilwe, says he is happy that Batswana still enjoy peace and stability as demonstrated by their freedom to elect a government of their choice.

Dr Kedikilwe said this after casting his vote in the Mmadinare-Sefophe constituency this morning (Friday, October 24, 2014).  Dr Kedikilwe said he started voting in 1974, and had been honoured to have been able to partake in a government that practiced democratic principles.

He expressed the hope that his vote would make a difference and also wished his party victory.

Mr Philemon Gaeboloke who was the first to cast his vote at the same polling station said he arrived at around 2:30am and was happy to have fulfilled his right as a Motswana.

Thousands of Batswana flocked to polling stations across the country this morning to exercise their constitutional right.

As has been the case in the previous national polls since the 1960s, the eleventh general election of 2014 started off with a tranquil atmosphere prevailing at polling stations countrywide. ENDS
