Timor-Leste Administers Own Elections
On July 7, I went to the polls—along with my fellow citizens of Timor-Leste—to participate in a notable election: not only did we elect a new parliament for the second time in our young country’s history, but we also voted in general elections that for the first time were managed and run entirely by Timorese institutions. As was widely anticipated, the elections were peaceful and the turnout was high, at about 75 percent.
