  • Democratic elections in the 3rd world are hampered by corruption. The problem with democracy in the 3rd world is there is so much endemic corruption that elections are rarely fair or democratic. The most common abuse is the rigging of elections, in which a leader corruptly uses their existing influence to suppress opposition candidates, particularly by denying them access to mainstream media channels. Another form of corruption is "stuffing" ballots with fake votes. And, if this fails, and rulers don't like the results, they often send out their goons to beat people up, declare a state of emergency, and then use that state of emergency to re-claim power.
