EASF Information Manager Mr Jules Hoareau addressing participants during the training.In line with EASF's commitment towards enhancement of democratic processes as well as supporting peace and stability in the region, the Director, Brig. Gen. Getachew Fayisa, officially launched an Elections' Observer Mission (EOM) to the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, on 11th June 2021 at the Secretariat in Karen, Nairobi.

EASF's seasoned contingent of experts from its Member States will support the democratic process through observation and objective assessment of the election process in accordance with the African Charter on Democracy, Elections, and Governance (ACDEG). The ACDEG was adopted by the African Union (AU) in 2007 as a roadmap to encourage better governance across the continent. It sets out international standards of good governance as well as free and fair elections.

During the flagging-off ceremony, the Director urged the team to carry out its mandate in the most efficient and professional way. Brig. Gen. Fayisa expressed satisfaction that the mission's planning team weighed substantively into gender parity, and unanimously elected the Head of Finance and Administration, Ms. Lina Peggy Hoareau, as the Deputy Head of Mission.

The EOM to the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia is supported through African Union's financing as well as the International Advisory Coordinating Staff (IACS), which is based within the Secretariat in Karen, Nairobi.
