DP Lays Strategy for Poll Security in 2011
In a move directly aimed at addressing rigging machinations and politicians playing upon voter's fear of violence, DP announced bold moves to equip itself with poll security ahead of the 2011 elections. At the end of a two day retreat that brought together warring factions, local and international leaders, DP's leaders summarized proposals to tackle burning issues in the party. A strong statement announcing training of party vigilantes provoked strong reaction from all corners of the political divide. These reactions forgot to note that DP's approach would remain lawful with the sole purpose of enforcing the laws on the books rather than a wholesale declaration of war on the government.
