Why so Many Elections in 2012?

This is my first thread on ATS and I am not up with all the tecnogagetry. Please P.M. Me with any constructive critisizm. If the mods feel this has been covered or is in the wrong category feel free to take appropriate action.
This is a hard topic to research as a Google search comes up with hundreds of sites about U.S. Elections (same trend here on ATS). The only other thread I could find is this well presented thread by Vitchilo. Unfortunately it was derailed by the second post... Any updates on elections or opinions on specific elections should be posted to that thread.

I am in no way an expert on this topic, but by the end of last year I found it odd the number of elections in 2012. When china was given a novelty vote and the criticizem of the Kremlin wasn't met with widespread bloodshed I was even more perplexed. Some of the countries having/had elections, Russia, France, Greece, Germany, Egypt, Palestine, Mexico, Venezuela, the U.S., South Korea, India, East Timor, For a full list see Wiki ...
Is this yet another step in the current paradigm shift? Or is it pure coincidence and political maneuvering?

This is from Dec 30 2011...

2011 will likely be recorded as a year of historic change. Mass uprisings have upended governments across the Arab world. Economic mismanagement in Europe led to changes at the top in Italy, Greece and Spain. 365 days ago you couldn't have predicted these events. You couldn't have imagined so many leaders would lose their jobs.

59 countries will be tallying up votes - local, state or national. There are 193 countries in the world so that's about a third of the world's nations. 26 of these may see a change in national leadership. Together, these changes could affect 53% of the world's population, representing half of the world's GDP. And a lot of the change is concentrated in the world's most powerful countries.

Of all of them, China will not have democratic elections, of course, but it will see the biggest, wholesale change at the top. 70% of the country's leadership will be new. But we're not expecting any surprises - it's widely believed that Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao will be replaced by Xi Jinping and Li Keqiang. So, get used to those names, you'll be hearing a lot of them. Russia's election will be the most predictable. We already know that Prime Minister Putin is going to become President Putin once again. But even that change isn't as clear-cut as you'd imagine. For the first time in years, it seems like it's becoming acceptable in Russia to criticize the Kremlin. Putin was recently openly booed at a boxing match, and his party had a stunningly weak showing in the recent parliamentary elections.

Three possibilities in my opinion...
*Many ATSers have been right over the years and this is a coordinated move by the powers that be to usher in a new world order. considering the majority of the worlds population is going to see an election this year I would say its more possible than ever. This is unlikely in my opinion, there are simply too many people involved.
*While many of us have been focusing on those that are doing us wrong, those who have been fighting for our freedom and liberty have gone unnoticed. Maybe a new world order that relies on the opinions of the people... There is no denying more people are being heard today than ever before, whether its falling on deaf ears is another thing.
*I am a kook who reads into thing too much, (this is most likely true regardless of the fist two options).

Here are the links again and an opinion piece from March 17th...

So three questions from me...
Is there anything in this?
If yes...
Do we know who is responsible?
If yes...
will this be a “good” or “bad” for the people of Earth in general?

I don't think elections exist how we think they do, in any nation.

The policy won't change, just the faces.

I agree. What surprises me is the number of people worldwide being given the chance to choose that face.
Take Burma (Myanmar) for example, after 50 years of military rule they introduced a civilian government in 2011. Their is talk of corruption in the upcoming elections but opposition parties seem to have high hopes for the future. The geopolitical ramifications of any change in that region will be significant. how will china and India react? densely populated Burma could be a Great Power if it could get its act together, this might be possible if its propped up by a superpower....

I am just wanting to contribute to the discussion saying that I am a seer, that in the past have proven to be very accurate in political predictions, and I cannot see the big landslide victory that many polls are saying Mexico is going to experience this July 1st 2012 Presidential Election.

For a start, American Presidents are on a fixed four-year term, and French Presidents are on a fixed five-year term.
Evidently this year the two cycles coincided.
The same explanation might bring in some of the others.
