Political parties and candidates are key stakeholders in the election process. They compete for public office using campaigns through party-based platforms to convince electorates for their votes. Thus, parties and candidates could potentially be destructive in the election process. Drawing on the stakeholder theory and stakeholder engagement literature, this paper develops a political stakeholder engagement framework to create, communicate, deliver and exchange sustainable political strategies to political stakeholders to mitigate election violence and intimidation. The paper outlines a definition, the process of political stakeholder engagement and the application of the developed framework to the fiercely contested US 2016 presidential election. The analysis and lessons from the US case suggests the importance of the political stakeholder engagement process as an integral part of sustainable election governance.
