In Africa, there are many countries that rarely know the change of their president. The aim of this paper is to study the economic and non-economic determinants of number of power alternation in Africa over the period 1990-2015. The poisson regression is used. The results indicate that the growth of the gross domestic product per capita has a negative impact on the number of political change while the democracy index and the coup have a positive influence.Keyswords: poisson model, power alternation, AfricaJEL Classifications: D72, C53DOI:
