2021: Elections follow-up mission

EISA's EPP department conducted an election follow-up mission to Mozambique from 23-26 March 2021. The team of four met with the National Electoral Commission (CNE), the Constitutional Court, the governing FRELIMO party, and the two largest opposition parties namely RENAMO and MDM. A meeting with CSOs was held virtually and face to face in a round table discussion that included CDD, CESC, Socientade Aberta and SOLDMOZ. With the Swedish Embassy a face to face meeting was held, while meetings with the Embassy of Norway in Mozambique and the Canadian Embassy were held online due to restrictions on physical meetings by these two embassies.

Stakeholders intimated that electoral laws require harmonisation, for the many conflicting laws make legal interpretation difficult when a disputes arise. EISA continues to engage these partners and donors for future collaboration in with regards to the issue of harmonisation.
