Betting on Candidates For Political Posts
Betting exchanges and online betting platforms will let you place a bet on anything you want. Fathers have often placed bets on their sons representing football teams at senior levels and some have scored big time, apart from being very proud of the achievement of course.
With betting exchanges, a punter can place a bet and it is up to other punters to back it or bet against it, which is why it has become so easy.
All betting platforms now acknowledge that betting on political outcomes has become quite popular. At the end of the day, it normally boils down to a yes or no vote for one party or another, so it is a very simple form of betting to get involved in.
These days, most governments will allow citizens to bet on online platforms, so say you were in Estonia and wanted to place a bet on the candidate who you believe will land the next United Nations Secretary General role, you will find it listed online and you can then place your stake.
While elections are the most popular, the United Nations top post has also featured in the betting markets in the last 10 to 15 years, mostly because of the popularity of Kofi Annan and Ban Ki Moon.
It is not an easy process and has been changing over the past few years to make the election more transparent and accountable. But if you follow the news and even follow the United Nations website itself, you can find some pretty good clues about who is being touted for the role.
The next election will be held in four years time, so you have plenty of time to keep your ear to the ground and look out for possible signals that might net you a big betting win!
