"This monograph has examined various democratic processes and the consolidation of democracy in Namibia with specific reference to the most recent 2004 election process. The data indicates that Namibia is on its way to being a strong democracy, although the democratic process in Namibia faces challenges that could risk the consolidation of democracy. Given that Namibia has been independent for only 15 years, democracy is in its infancy and needs to be nurtured lest it fall victim to alternative forms of government such as dictatorship or military rule."
