Namibia's Official Opposition Party Ends Parliament Boycott

After a six-month boycott over last year November’s election results, nine politicians of the Rally for Democracy Party (RDP)  and Republican Party (RP) were sworn in as members of the National Assembly yesterday.

I must admit…that’s where I want the RDP (as the official opposition party) to be, representing the aspirations of its constituencies, and building a momentum for a vibrant opposition politics in Namibia.
