U.S. Presidential Transitions : eJournal USA, janvier 2009

mercredi 14 janvier 2009
 Laure PESKINE

We often read or hear about turmoil before, during, or after elections around the world. An important characteristic of democracy in the United States, however, is the regularly recurring peaceful transfer of power from one president to the next. Americans know when the next presidential election will take place – the Tuesday after the first Monday in November every four years. And power will be transferred to the newly elected (or re-elected) president on January 20 of the following year.

In this issue of eJournal USA, as another U.S. presidential transition takes place, we’ve tried to present our readers with insight into this process, including some historical background.
