New Zealand receives a 54.75 percent score for electoral fairness, and Saudi Arabia receives a 0 percent score for electoral fairness

On August 2nd, an eight-person audit team audited New Zealand and Saudi Arabia as part of the FDA global electoral fairness audit.

New Zealand received a passing overall score of 54.74 percent. The low score is reflective of the lack of restrictions on the political content of New Zealand media and broadcasters coupled with the July 12th, 2011 privatization of the public national broadcaster and radio.

Saudi Arabia received a failing score of 0 percent. The score is reflective of complete electoral unfairness, whereby the Saudi king and his royal family control the country through Islam and Sharia law.

The FDA Saudi Arabia and New Zealand reports will published on August 5th.
