Where We Work.

Central African Republic

After holding the presidential and legislative elections in 2020-2021, the Central African Republic has committed to organize local elections (municipal and regional) in 2023.

These local elections have not been held for 35 years and are highly important to pave the road to elected and democratic municipal administration (this will put an end to nominated administration) and to an effective implementation of decentralisation and local governance.

EISA is working to make sure that:

These elections are as inclusive as possible promoting the participation of women, youth, the disabled and ethnic minorities as voters and candidates.

The administration that will derive from these polls reflect the social and political diversity of the country.

The elections contribute to install a local narrative of democracy and development.

The 15 month project is called “Support for Electoral Reforms by Central African Civil Society” and is funded by the European Union. It includes three operational areas of support which are:

Citizen electoral reforms (EISA supports CSO partners to follow-up on the recommendations they have made after the 2020, to propose improvements to the election framework and advocate for their implementation in a new electoral code. This is a new aspect of EISA’s work in CAR).

Support to civic and voter education (regarding local elections).

Citizen observation of the 2023 local elections.

Our Goal.

Strengthen and promote democracy and inclusive democratic processes in the Central African Republic.

Project Objectives

The project is implemented by EISA CAR’s local partner Reseau Arc-En-Ciel (a consortium of 16 local CSOs) with the technical support from EISA.

EISA’s action areas include capacity building and ongoing technical support on :

Reforms analysis and proposal

Political and parliamentary advocacy

Local election civic and voter education tool development, planning and implementation

Networks & Partners
