The European Union (EU) injected US$10 million of aid for the organisation of the electoral procedures in Mozambique along with supporting the formation of democracy in the country.
The funds will be delivered under a five-year memorandum of understanding penned in Maputo by Mozambique Electoral Commission and the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA).
National Electoral Commission chairman Abdul Carimo stated: “this will help in certain aspects such as strengthening of the civil society in monitoring electoral process, which is one of our weaknesses particularly during voting days and vote count.”
