    Default credible, secure

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask about the meaning of "credible" and "secure" in the following context:

    In multiparty pluralistic elections the availability of credible alternative choices depends on the political parties having secure opportunities for financing election campaigns and routine operations. The legal framework of parties and candidates campaign financing consists of constitutional principles, laws relating to the financing of parties and candidates, normative complexes in the electoral legislation or the parliamentary statutes on political parties in separate laws.

    Does "credible" imply genuine here, i.e. really different choices?

    And does "secure" mean stable?

    the basic meaning of "credible" is 'believable'. In that sentence "credible" does imply 'genuine','real'. Just by definition "credible" doesn't mean 'different', but in reality political parties practically always have some differences.



    and does "secure" mean stable? yes.....stable, reliable (maybe you can even say 'guaranteed')
