Lesotho

Yearbook 2016

Lesotho. According to countryaah, the current population of Lesotho is 2,142,260. Lesotho celebrated on October 4 the 50th anniversary of its independence. The party mood was clouded a month later by a bitter factional battle within Prime Minister Pakalitha Mosisili's party, the Democratic Congress (DC). A group wanted to jump off the fragile coalition that has ruled since 2015 and collaborate with former Prime Minister Tom Thabanes Allbasothian Convention (ABC). A threatening vote of confidence was averted when the President ended the parliamentary year earlier than usual.
