Introduction

Democracy is a very important system of government all over the world. There is no continent in the world where democratic principles are not upheld. A cardinal principle of democracy is periodic elections. If a democratic government does not ensure a free, fair, and credible election, such government will result in self-destruction and series of political unrest. Whenever there is Political unrest, the effectiveness of the election as a governmental continuity and change process will be jeopardized, yet managing political unrest in the society is part of governmental duties. Election has various propaganda, and at different levels, it could be unity or division, propaganda, continuity or change among others. Therefore, how can democratic governments ensure credible elections in a peaceful atmosphere and as well in an atmosphere of political unrest amidst various propaganda?
