    The Election Support Project 2010

    The United Nations in Tanzania is helping to prepare for free, fair and credible Parliamentary and Presidential elections in 2010.
    Why? This support is in response to requests from the Union and Zanzibar governments of Tanzania to help meet the technical needs of the elections.
    What? These technical needs include equipment, training and expert advice (national and international). Support has also been requested for voter education and voter registration over the coming year, media training, and election observation in 2010 by NGOs and others.
    Who? The main partners for United Nations assistance are the two official election management agencies: the National Electoral Commission (NEC) and the Zanzibar Electoral Commission (ZEC). The assistance provided through the Commissions will enable them to better plan, prepare, conduct, manage and supervise the elections in 2010 and in the future. Other partners will include NGOs, political parties, the media, and women’s networks who will help with voter education. Voter education will focus on women, people living with disabilities and marginalized groups to raise awareness of the right to vote including how and where to vote
    Where? The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is organizing and managing this support with an Election Support Project.
    When? The project was officially launched on June 15, 2009 and will run through 2010
    How? Funding is pledged by Canada, Denmark, European Commission, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and UNDP. The project oversight committee will include the United Nations, NEC, ZEC, government, donors and NGOs. Along with current technical assistance for free and fair elections, the goal of the UNDP Election Support Project in Tanzania is to help build the capacities of the election Commissions (NEC and ZEC), NGOs and others to enable entirely nationally supported free and fair elections in the future.
    UNDP has organized more than 100 Election Support Projects in countries around the world.

    Project Document signed on 15th June 2009. This is a two year project.
    Start date: 2009
    End date: 2011
