a new definition of transparency

OK: the new ballot boxes for the Nigerian elections are transparent. Now, how about the elections themselves? The balloting, delayed a week after some administrative snafus, is scheduled to go on for the rest of the month, with Parliamentary elections held tomorrow, the Presidential election set for April 16th, and the contests for state offices and governorships on the calendar for April 26th.

(my transparency: thanks to Andrea for the tip about the transparent ballot bags)
