Niger

Niger is scheduled to hold presidential and legislative elections in early 2021. The International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) is providing technical support to the Niger Independent National Election Commission (CENI) through the “Niger Electoral Support Activity to Promote Peaceful Democratic Transitions Through Free, Transparent and Inclusive Elections,” funded through the Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening. IFES is providing assistance on biometric voter registration, a focus of recently passed electoral reforms in Niger. IFES supports training within the CENI to promote free, transparent and credible electoral processes.
