Where We Work.

Chad

Chad is a landlocked country between Cameroon, Libya, Niger, Nigeria, the Central African Republic and Sudan. Its political history since independence on August 11, 1960 has been marked by a succession of deadly confrontations between Chadians, constitutional instability, and contested or boycotted electoral processes. After the death of President Idriss Deby on April 18, 2020, a transitional period began with a government open to several political components.

This government is working to implement a process that will lead to the drafting of a new constitution and a new legal and institutional framework for elections as a prerequisite for holding democratic elections.

Such a venture needs to be backed up and supported by technical and financial partners, with a focus on civil society, which has an important role to play not only in monitoring the electoral process, but also in raising awareness among the population for inclusive, transparent and peaceful elections. In this perspective, EISA, which supported the Chadian electoral process from 2009 to 2013, is back with the project to Supporting Chadian Citizens and Elections – Appui aux Acteurs Citoyens Tchadiens et Aux Élections (ACTE).

The project ACTE aims at

providing citizen actors with the tools and technical support necessary for an electoral process that restores the legitimacy of the authorities as well as the confidence of the voters and that contributes to anchoring democratic values, good governance and respect for fundamental rights and freedoms.

Duration: 2 years from September 2022 to September 2024.

The area of focus: Elections Observation, Civic Education, Advocacy, Capacity Building

Donor: European Union

Our Goal.

Promote an active role for civil society organizations in monitoring the post-transition electoral process, with a view to inclusive, transparent and peaceful elections.

Project Objectives

This goal will be achieved through 2 intermediate results (IR):

IR 1

Strengthen the capacities of citizen actors in order to develop and implement a strategy of civic and electoral education, voters’ mobilization and dissemination of fundamental elections related legal texts.

The action will assess various steps of the transitional process various steps including the Inclusive National Dialogue, the Drafting of the new Constitution and the revision of the legal electoral framework in Chad. It will take into account cross-cutting issues, such as human rights respect, gender mainstreaming, inclusion of minorities and internally displaced persons, in order to contribute to the reduction of discrimination and to promote the inclusion and participation of all in the political and electoral process.
