UN to offer technical assistance for Lesotho’s electoral process

Posted on

Maseru – The United Nations is to render technical assistance to Lesotho’s Independent Electoral Commission .

Announcing the plan, the UN Office in Lesotho said the assistance will be offered in the areas of voter education, communications, coordination of observer missions, support to women’s participation as well as an inclusion of disadvantaged groups.

“The United Nations is committed to supporting a process that leads to credible and accepted results. It calls on all stakeholders to continue to work towards the promotion of a peaceful and conducive environment for the elections,” the UN Office announced in its statement.

The Office expressed its commitment to supporting and engaging with partners in “efforts to enhance trust and build consensus in the pursuit of a peaceful and lasting resolution to political challenges in the country as well as strengthened rule of law and consolidated democratic process.”

The assistance is to be granted as a result of the UN electoral needs assessment mission undertaken from October 8-17 2014 with an invitation from the IEC of Lesotho.

Lesotho goes to the general poll in February 2015 after a signing of the SADC brokered peace deal known as the Maseru Facilitation Declaration led by SADC Facilitator and South Africa’s Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa.

This after a fall in smooth ties within the three partner-coalition government led by Prime Minister Thomas Thabane.

The country plunged into a political instability characterized by among others a confrontation between the Lesotho Defence Force and the Lesotho Mounted Police Service.
