NCD and NEC to Sign Collaborative MOU

NCD and NEC to Sign Collaborative MOU

Two leading governance institutions in the country, the National Commission for Democracy (NCD) and the National Electoral Commission (NEC), on Thursday, March 31, 2016 during a meeting held at the NCD Resource Center on the 9th Floor, West Wing, Youyi Building, have finally agreed to sign a Memorandum of Understanding.

The NEC Chairperson, Mr. Mohamed N’fa Alie Conteh, revealed that the principle purpose for his Commission’s visit to the National Commission for Democracy is to see how best the two leading governance institutions could work together through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding that would enable them to jointly carry out national programmes more especially on civic and electoral education. He stressed that the two institutions are pivotal in the governance of the Country justifying that his Commission is charged with the constitutional mandate of conducting free, fair and regular elections whereas the National Commission for Democracy is constitutionally charged with the responsibility of educating the citizens of this Country on their civic rights and responsibilities noting that citizens can only vote in an election when they know that voting is their constitutional and civic right.

He further revealed that NCD has been very supportive in making sure that people are educated on what is expected of them in any electoral process as manifested in the bye-elections that were conducted in 2015 in which NCD embarked on effective civic and voter education activities and above all, the two institutions have collaborated on two key programmes worthwhile for credible and transparent elections namely, the Institute of Electoral Administration and Civic Education (INEACE) and the Boundary Delimitation Committee (BDC) noting that the latter is currently chaired by the NCD Western Region Commissioner, Georgette L. O. de Marke.
