Mozambique's first democratic multiparty election in 1994 was a national watershed, bringing an end to 17 years of political conflict, instability and civil war, and closing a chapter of over a century of authoritarian rule begun by Portuguese colonization. But what do ordinary Mozambicans think about wha has occurred since then? This report presents results from a recent nationally representative attitude survey that assesses the views of the country's citizens toward the democratic ezperiment and sets them in a regional perspective by comparing them to identical questions from Afrobarometer survey across Southern Africa.
