    there would have been

    Hi there,
    "it was expected that there WOULD HAVE BEEN been riots, widespread violence and a bloody dispute among the different political parties SUPPORTERS, on the day of the election for zimbabwe's president, and people would BE afraid to cast thei votes."
    Could you tell me if the verb tenses in this sentence are correct, and if there is a more suitable name for supporters in this context, or for any other word I've written please?
    Thank you so much

    Re: there would have been

    (...that) 'there WOULD HAVE BEEN been riots' if....

    You have used a Conditional tense form, but there is no 'condition'

    Otherwise, 'it was expected that there would be riots...'
