The Electoral Commissions Forum of SADC Countries is collaborating with International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA) to contribute to capacity strengthening of senior election officials through the delivery of the annual New Commissioners Orientation (NCO).
This is the seventh session of the NCO for EMBs in Southern Africa and due to the restrictions posed by Covid-19 pandemic, the session is conducted virtually from 12-15 July 2021 and it will be a Portuguese session for CNE Angola and CNE Mozambique.
