With parliamentary elections approaching on July 22, 2017, both parties, Fretilin and CNRT will sooner or later try to play their own cards, and possibly even be compelled by self-interest to do so. The extraordinary post-2015 Timorese political truce may not last. Broader issues impacting East Timor, including the politics of modernization, development, and socio-political change will be examined. Copyright © 2018 The Author(s).
