This document provides a summary of popular attitudes regarding the demand for and supply of democracy in Burkina Faso as revealed during one Afrobarometer survey conducted between October 6 and 21, 2008 (N=1200). A sample of this size yields a margin of error of +/- 3 percent at a confidence level of 95 percent. The charts that follow capture perceptions of:

  • The demand for democracy (including individual support for democracy, patience with democracy and rejection of military rule, one-party rule, and one-man rule);
  • Support for democratic institutions (including attitudes towards elections, term limits, multiparty rule, and checks on presidential powers); and
  • The supply of democracy (including satisfaction with democracy and the perceived extent of democracy, quality of elections and the protection of key freedoms).
