Politicians That Calmly Accepted Defeat in The 2022 Elections

Election period is one of the most intense times of the year. This applies to not only the general public, but also candidates who want to make sure they win. The election results can be very unpredictable and may cause chaos amongst all people. In most cases, accepting defeat in a calm way is not such an easy thing for politicians to do.

More often than never, most of them accuse the election officials of rigging and manipulating votes. This causes a lot of conflict in most voting centers and in some cases violence. This year, however, most of the defeated have calmly accepted defeat and wish the winners well, despite what might have went down.
