The project focuses its support on the strengthening of the Electoral Management Body by providing technical and legal advice on the electoral legal framework, procedural, logistical and on overall operational capacities for the preparation of the voter registration and electoral events, under the mandate of the Electoral Commission.
The project also provides technical assistance to enhance voter awareness and to ensure wide participation and outreach through the implementation of activities involving voters, candidates, political parties, media and civil society.
Particular efforts are dedicated to the advocacy for women’s political participation both as voters and candidates.
