Economics and Politics are bedfellows. An increment in either leads to the increment of the other. The cooperation of more than one economy to achieve common development has a definite impact on politics. How this is impacted is based on the manner with which economic cooperation is undertaken, and secondly by the factor of power politics. Democracy and governance in Africa are embroiled in several circumstantial factors, integration of African economies being one of them (Mwencha, 2008:26). These factors do influence each other, either positively or negatively.
