[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] I must admit that I have wondered what the point of this sort of election is. Anai is not alone in her interests of what purpose this election serves. Why conduct an election with only one candidate? What do the people think of this exercise? What does the government think of this exercise? As to the US response, I am sure they could not care less. I understand Jimmy Carter watched Yasser Arafat recieve 88% of the 80% of registered voters votes cast in Palestine. This certainly has not curtailed the US calling for regime change there. But then 'Bush the Limited' recieved less than half, of less than half of the registered voters votes in the US.
