On the eve of the Presidential and Gubernatorial elections in the Union of Comoros, the deployed team of experts from the Eastern Africa Standby Force confirmed on 23rd Mach 2019 that it had put up all necessary mechanisms in place to ensure that it delivers on its mandate.

The on-the-ground preparations for the EASF Elections' Observations' Mission (EOM) to the Union of Comoros included organization of collaborative meetings with election observers from many parts of the African continent as well as those from other parts of the world. These meetings paved way for the planning of the actual conduct of the EOM; consequently, all polling stations in the three islands which make up the Union of Comoros were mapped and diverse teams assigned to these locations.

The Head of Mission Lt Gen. (RTD) Germaine Niyoyankana together with the Deputy Head of Mission Mr. Steve Lalande expressed confidence in the deployed team of professionals from diverse backgrounds from EASF Member States.
