The major aim of this paper is to investigate the opposition politics in Africa.
The paper also examines the status and the role, the contributions and
the weaknesses of opposition1 political parties in Africa, particularly in transitional democracies
that emerged in the 1990s. In Africa, many of the opposition parties appear or become active only during an election, and disappear when the election is over. It is found out that most of the opposition parties in Africa are established around the personalities of individuals,
lack internal democracy, suffer from inter-party and intra-party conflicts,
have severe shortage of finance, and lack strong base and experience.
Their weaknesses also include bad organization and weak
connection with the popular constituencies. The paper concludes
that most of the weaknesses of the African opposition parties emanate from
the incumbents' hostile policies, which are mostly aimed at fragmenting and
weakening the opposition groups.
