|Overview : |
UNDP has been involved in the electoral processes in Mozambique since the country’s first multiparty elections in 1994, providing technical assistance and support to both EMBs and other electoral stakeholders. Despite the recognized development of the EMBs electoral experience and technical knowledge, the country still faces several challenges in its efforts to ensure credible and transparent elections: the voter’s participation has, since 2009, been below 50%; the transmission of results system has been increasingly criticized because of the time required for the electoral authorities to release the electoral results; the disputes resolution and complaints procedures and process are not very accessible or clear to understand and for the first time, the district judges will also have to solve electoral disputes.
The project evaluation is being carried out to assess the progress made by the project against the project outputs and indicators. In-depth analysis will be needed to review the results achieved under four components as outlined in the project document; The evaluation should look into the relevance, sustainability, effectiveness and efficiency of the assistance provided by SEAM to STAE, CNE, Constitutional Council, Supreme Court and Ministry of Interior especially to the National Police during the project cycle; The evaluation will also measure an impact of the project towards strengthening the capacity of electoral authorities ensuring that the process is credible, transparent and accepted by the electorate.
