Is it true or false that democratic practice has produced hitherto unexpected outcomes in various parts of the world?

Some of us look at the polities of Western European nations and the USA, expecting other nation’s electorates who are still taking baby steps on the route to do similar things.

Examples are plucked out thin air to back arguments that are often rooted in premises that could be described as disingenuous.

One of the striking features about conservative politicians ‘of colour’ in Western Europe is the hard work and emotional investment they have put into being assimilated into the mainstream cultures of their countries.

Maybe this particular feature is being overlooked or deliberately glossed over in debates about democratic practice in Africa.
