Should the government attempt to influence foreign elections?

Electoral interventions are covert attempts to regulate the outcome of elections in a foreign country. A 2016 study by Dov H. Levin suggests electoral interventions occurring in nearly one of every nine competitive polls between 1946 and 2000 as well as in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. In July 2018 a legislation was proposed to prohibit US election interference abroad.

Those who favor election interference believe it helps to regulate hostile regimes and is essential for world peace. Opponents argue that such measures are undemocratic and unconstitutional and pose a significant threat to a country’s sovereign status.
