Lesotho: Political parties sign electoral pledge
Lesotho political parties signed an electoral pledge on 11 December 2014, in anticipation of elections to be held on 28 February 2015. This follows ongoing SADC-led negotiations after an attempted coup in August.

However, various parties have noted the lack of consultation around the pledge and feel that they have signed off on as yet unknown conditions, which could cause conflict further down the line.

The overall security situation in Lesotho remains unchanged but stable.
