Kinshasa, 23 mars 2023(ACP)- The inclusion of indigenous women for participatory representation in the electoral process in the Democratic Republic of Congo was at the center of an awareness day organized, Thursday in Kinshasa, by the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) in partnership with the International Foundation for electoral systems (IFES).
« Ladies of the category of indigenous peoples, we have the privilege today in this place to show you, in a clear way, the place of choice that the new management of the CENI grants to the inclusion of women’s rights. said CENI second vice-president Didi Manara.
« We really want this activity to go off without a hitch, so that you retain the guiding principles of the CENI in relation to your category. We call on the conscience of all women to truly consider themselves as full stakeholders as voters and candidates. he said to indigenous women, before paying tribute to IFES.
« I commend the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) for the technical support it provides to the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI). The fact that it deals with the category of vulnerable women and men, allows the CENI to maximize awareness and make it an inclusive activity. “, he said. ACP/
