The US elections always attract global attention. This time round the subject of this urgent attention is the participation of very loud personalities in the presidential race. Indeed nations and stock markets alongside political analysts around the world have voiced their views and concerns on the outcome of the presidential race. Reflecting on the US presidential elections makes me think about the upcoming elections in my own country next year. The question I ask is, “are elections about personalities or about the institutions that install them?” The citizens of democracies answer that question on Election Day.
