BREAKING: Georgia’s Supreme Court just rejected a Republican request to block early voting this Saturday, 11/26. This means at least 22 counties will offer early, in-person voting. This is a huge victory for democracy & every voter in Georgia. Now let’s re-elect Raphael Warnock.
As happy as i am today, if after 5 years PH tak perform i’ll review back my options. Beauty of democracy. Tak function, tukar. Tak junjung sampai kiamat.
2/ Scottish democracy will not be denied.
Today’s ruling blocks one route to Scotland’s voice being heard on independence - but in a democracy our voice cannot and will not be silenced.
I'll make a full statement later this morning - tune in around 11.30am
Democracy-building requires plurality. A free Iran requires that we stop being ideologues and start working alongside all those who want a free and democratic Iran. Our only job is to create ways in which the Iranian people can self-determine. Unity on this is key.
✊ BREAKING: @NicolaSturgeon
has announced the SNP are launching a major campaign to defend Scottish democracy.
🗳 The people of Scotland must have a choice on our future.
I know it's difficult for some English people to grasp. But Germany has moved on from World War II and the painful past. It's a thriving democracy today with very high human rights standards. If we could move on, I suggest you do, too. Focus on the present and a better future.
On this day, 23rd November 2022, democracy died in Scotland. Let’s not forget it.
Democracy never rests — and neither do our Volunteers in Politics who are making every vote count.
Today, we are helping California voters cure their ballots and making calls into Georgia to re-elect Sen. Warnock. Join us!
Incompetent election officials have the ability to destroy the credibility of our democracy. We cannot allow the failures of Maricopa County determine Arizona’s future.
Elections shouldn’t be partisan. It should be administered transparently and competently no matter what party.
My door got knocked for the first time this general cycle! For Senator @ReverendWarnock
: for voting rights, women's rights, economic opportunity, & fairness and equality in our democracy.
When the majority of Americans want the constant gun violence to cease and NOTHING changes, we live in a country where democracy, the will of most of us, is subsumed by the tyranny of the minority.
The Supreme Court decision has certainly stirred the nation and energised the independence movement across Scotland. Our democracy is under threat. In fact the independence movement is now a democracy movement. Does the U.K. Government think it can just ignore this? 🏴
There is only one way forward.
UK - The Public Order Bill is now in the House of Lords. It has had virtually no opposition. If it passes it will end your right to protest and undermine democracy.
Arranging, posting and attending protests will be subject to Police State permissions.
How very China 🇨🇳

How long before Twitter eliminates the Block and Mute buttons so we will be force-fed maga disinformation? Feeds and follows are already being manipulated. Pro Democracy accounts are being suppressed.
Spoke with a soviet generation Ukrainian yesterday who said.
"We don't have electricity, water or heating but we have freedom and democracy".
Russia's terror campaign is backfiring. Ukrainian endurance is becoming a source of inspiration for the free world.
The putrid, disgusting, hate filled, transphobic and racist bile, that Pauline Hanson spewed in the Australian senate chamber today, is a disgrace to our democracy and our country. 😡😡😡
🏴 THANK YOU Aberdeen.
🙌🏼 The movement for Scottish independence has now also become the movement for democracy.
🤝 Hundreds of people turned out in Aberdeen this evening in a display of support for Scotland’s right to self determination. https://t.co/IfjepATrAs
I believe the system of Governors and Lieutenant Governors should be finished. What’s the role of Governors and LGs in democracy? People elect their govt which is answerable to them. If the govt doesn’t work, people will throw them out in next election: Arvind Kejriwal

Inviting Ethiopian PM to Washington's democracy summit is baffling.
1. If it is designed to reward Abiy for peace that peace is shaky and reversible.
2. Abiy has no democratic aspirations. His authoritarian state-building project is cause of Ethiopia's conflicts and woes.
This was democracy in action. 2,000,000+ Scots rejecting separatism.
There has never been numbers remotely close to this in any election or referendum in Scotland.
Don’t believe the nationalist hype. https://t.co/QEenwQBXnO
Top most senior General Asim Munir is appointed as Army chief & Sahir Shamshad as Joint Chief. Hope that new Army officials will follow constitution, rule of law & will work to strengthen democracy.
I'm told the Father of Democracy, Raila Odinga has showed up for Juliana Cherera and her fellow treasonous commissioners' ouster hearing in parliament. Well, as long William Ruto is the president, Cherera and her puppies will never be IEBC commissioners.
It's Westminster politicians vs Scottish democracy.
