NIGER Returns to Democracy!

Niger recently held peaceful elections, turning power over to the main opposition party.

Last year there was a nearly bloodless and popularly support coup to oust the prior president from office. He had refused to step down when his term ended in 2009.

April 7 is election day here.  People are feeling hope for a better future.
