On 26th July, the Uganda National NGO Forum and Alliance for Finance Monitoring (ACFIM) met with the Electoral Commission to discuss strategies to foster collaboration between E.C and the CSO sector.
The discussion was very instructive in underscoring key roles of all stakeholder in fostering democracy in Uganda. The meeting highlighted the importance of regular and open communication between all stakeholders in the electoral processes to promote unity, mutual learning and cooperation.
The parties committed to working closely together to take forward the Electoral Commission’s institutional agenda to build a civically competent citizenry and an effective electoral management system.
As the UNNGOF, we are looking forward to working collaboratively with the Electoral Commission to ensure that citizens’ participation in the electoral and governance processes in Uganda is meaningful.
