尼日利亚新总统乔纳森誓言强化民主制度(中英文双语)Nigerian President Vows to Strengthen Democratic Rule

The inauguration of President Goodluck Jonathan in Nigeria Sunday marks the country's third civilian government since the end of military rule in 1999.

 

尼日利亚新总统古德勒克.乔纳森星期天宣誓就职,标志着尼日利亚自1999年结束军人统治以来第三届民选政府开始执政。

President Jonathan first came to power following the death last year of leader Umaru Musa Yar'adua. Ascending from the vice presidency, Jonathan vowed to continue the Yar'adua administration's commitment to electoral reform.

 

乔纳森首次掌管最高权力是在前任总统去年亚拉杜瓦去世之后。乔纳森从副总统的位置上一越成为总统后,他誓言继承亚拉杜瓦政府致力于选举改革的决心。

So having won his own four-year mandate in elections last month, President Jonathan says he understands well what that vote means for Nigerian democracy.

 

因此上个月选举中乔纳森胜选为新一届4年总统任期之后,他说他深刻理解这次选举对尼日利亚的民主意味着什么。

“Over 72 million eligible Nigerians endured all manner of inconveniences just to secure their voters' cards in order to exercise their right to choose those who will govern them. At the polls, we saw the most dramatic expression of the hunger for democracy, stories of courage and patriotism,” said Jonathan.

 

乔纳森说:“超过7200万尼日利亚合格选民忍受了所有的不便,全力保住了他们的选民卡,以便行使自己挑选自己领导人的权利。在投票站,我们看到渴望民主的最让人印象深刻的表情,听到了许多有关爱国主义勇气的事例。”

In his inaugural address, President Jonathan vowed to work with the legislative and judicial branches of government to strengthen the electoral process.

 

乔纳森总统在宣誓就职仪式上保证和政府的立法及司法机构共同努力,强化选举程序。

The executive director of Nigeria's Center for Democracy and Development, Jibo Ibrahim, says the three branches have had their difficulties since 1999 but have all risen to the occasion at critical times, especially the judiciary.

 

尼日利亚民主发展中心执行主任易卜拉欣说,自1999年以来,政府的三个分支都各自经历了困难,但都坚持到了这个关键的时刻,特别是司法部门。
