NEW YORK, NY (SP) — In the 2004 presidential election ballots of American citizens will be tallied alongside those cast by citizens of all other countries of the world.
The plan, tabled at the UN General Assembly last week in New York, aims to ensure that "the next leader of the world’s sole superpower is someone we can all live with".
As French Foreign Minister Dominique de Villepin put it, "With the way America throws its weight around in the world, we simply cannot risk the possibility of a second term for George W. Bush."
He went on to say that, given the 51% voter turnout in the 2000 U.S. election, it was up to the citizens of the rest of the world to cast their ballots and ensure that a "legitimate candidate" is elected. "I mean, George Dubya as President of the United States of America? Mon Dieu, come on – talk about voters getting the leader they deserve. Unfortunately, those of us in the rest of the world didn’t deserve him, but we got him anyhow."
