I thank participants at AEA/ASSA, NEUDC, BREAD/CEPR, ASA, APSA, EEA and CSAE conferences, and at various seminar presentations. The National Electoral Commission of São Tomé and Príncipe, through its president, José Carlos Barreiros, provided invaluable local support to this research, for which I am most indebted. I am also thankful to CPLP, namely Hélder Lucas and Leonardo Simão, for coordination with their electoral observation mission. A. Assunção, C. Castro, D. Coelho, A. Costa, A. Dias, M. Diogo, E. Lima, H. Mandinga, C. Moreno, A. Penhor and E. Solé participated in the fieldwork team: their dedication was crucial for the success of this project.
