Providing fair elections
Implementation: Since its inception in 1945, the United Nations has enabled people in over 45 countries to participate in free and fair elections, including those held in Cambodia, Namibia, El Salvador, Eritrea, Mozambique and Nicaragua. It has provided electoral advice, assistance and monitoring of results. Most recently it has played a major part in bringing about the downfall of the apartheid system in South Africa, which the General Assembly called "a crime against humanity". Elections were held in April 1994 in which all South Africans were allowed to participate on an equal basis, followed by the establishment of a majority government.
