Nigerian Election: Buhari Gives Victo...
Abuja

01 Apr 2015

It was a sheer carnival in Abuja, Nigeria as General Muhammadu Buhari gave his victory speech after winning the 2015 Presidential elections in Nigeria. Buhari was magnanimous in victory, and made it clear that it was the Nigerian people who had voted him into office.

On the 1st of April, 2015 General Muhammadu Buhari defeated President Goodluck Jonathan in one of Nigeria's most tense elections. The vote had been postponed amid Nigeria's fight against Boko Haram, with many claiming that this was a tactic by current President Jonathan to make gains against the militant group in order to bolster his campaign.

This marks Buhari's second turn as Head of State, having ruled Nigeria as a military dictator between 1983-1985.

Safyah Hassan-Yavuz, a 28 years old German Muslim, feels constantly pressured to justify herself for being a Muslim in Germany. She believes that conditions for Muslims in Germany worsened in the wake of Paris attacks. The political movement PEGIDA, or Patriotic European Against the Islamization of the West, has also triggered divisions in German society. This story focuses on a slice of Safyah's life as a Muslim woman with both German and Muslim heritage and her experience in a country going through an identity crisis that has both united people and torn them apart.

2014 Presidential elections in Tunisia
Tunis
By Adeline Bailleul
24 Nov 2014

Raw footage of the polling stations in Tunis during Tunisia's first presidential election since a new constitution was adopted in January 2014.

With a voter turnout around 64 percent, this election marks the country's first democratic transition of power. Over 80,000 servicemen were deployed to ensure safety at polling stations, where voting went fairly smoothly throughout the day.

Beji Caid Essebsi of the secular Nida Tounes is expected to emerge on top, with Moncef Marzouki of the moderate Islamist Ennahda party following close behind. However, at the close of polling, no candidate seemed likely to have enough votes to win outright, in which case a run-off would take place in December.

Official results are expected to be released Wednesday.

Occupy Central Demonstrators Clash wi...
Hong Kong
By Miguel Candela
07 Oct 2014

A new era of disobedience in Hong Kong started 4 days after a student strike was officially declared on September 22. On Friday 26, supporters of the Occupy Central with Love and Peace movement occupied government headquarters. Their discontent began when China refused to reconsider the existing Hong Kong electoral reform. Protesters began to demand that people to freely choose the city's next leader in 2017. Even though the upcoming election would allow Hong Kong citizens to vote for the first time, the current system restricts the number of candidates, who need to secure support from at least 50% of the 1,200 members on a nominating committee. Their numbers will be capped in any given race at two or three candidates. Hong Kong has enjoyed political autonomy and freedom since its return from British to Chinese rule in 1997 under a formula known as "one country, two systems." Chinese leaders agreed then that the chief executive would be chosen by "universal suffrage" in 2017 but Beijing has not kept its promises. The historical, unprecedented and massive occupations in Hong Kong Island and Kowloon want to put pressure on the government by limiting the city's capabilities and commerce. Seeking for "true" universal suffrage and democracy in a peaceful and organized manner, protesters barricaded themselves in key touristic and economic areas. Protestors conveniently armed themselves with umbrellas, which subsequently became the rallying symbol with the catchy name Umbrella Revolution, to deflect volleys of pepper spray by police and as protection in sunny and wet weather. An overwhelmed police force and government have shown their lack of experience in handling peaceful protestors when they resorted to what some are calling unnecessary force on September 28 when 87 cans of tear gas were fired. Many citizens are starting to question whether protestors can maintain their momentum and keep putting pressure on the government or if civil disobedience may backfire and cause waves of hatred between anti- and pro-Occupy movement citizens. Whatever the result may be after the demonstrations, a new era in Hong Kong may be on the horizon.
