"The first section of the report provides an overview of the Swazi political landscape, while the second discusses the tinkhundla political model and reflects on the feasibility of the system and its institutions to become potential catalysts for political liberalisation. The third section unpacks the domestic discourse on political party participation in elections. The fourth section deals with relevant binding regional and international protocols that Swaziland is signatory to and how these can help in the country’s political liberalisation process. The last section recommends some of the measures that SADC can take to contribute to Swaziland’s political inclusivity, human rights promotion and socio-economic progress in the short to longer terms."
