Lesotho: A human rights agenda for the new Lesotho government
National elections in Lesotho took place on 3 June 2017. The Independent Electoral Commission released the results, indicating a coalition government led by Thomas Thabane’s All Basotho Convention (ABC) party. This comes after former Lesotho Prime Minister Pakalitha Mosisili lost a vote of no confidence in the Lesotho Parliament on 1 March 2017. On 7 March King Letsi announced the dissolution of the Lesotho Parliament. This is in a context where more than half the population live below the poverty line, and persistent droughts have led to low agricultural productivity in recent years, with a worsening food deficit.
