EISA has worked with the African Union Commission and the Pan African Parliament since the signing of a MoU with the AU in 2007.
Through Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) with Regional Economic Communities (REC) EISA seeks to promote credible democratic elections on the continent.
At national level EISA works with electoral management bodies to reinforce their capacity for the delivery of transparent, credible and peaceful elections, and with political parties and civil society organisations to assess electoral processes in a credible and professional manner and contribute to electoral reform efforts. Capacity building of these stakeholders, as well as of parliaments and local government structures is also undertaken.
To facilitate these efforts field offices were opened for various lengths of time in countries as diverse as Angola, Burundi, the Central African Republic, Chad, Côte d'Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Egypt, Kenya, Madagascar, Mali, Mozambique, Somalia, Sudan, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
