It will provide strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States' priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
UN Women Ethiopia Country Office, under its Strategic Note (2021 – 2025) identifies Women in Leadership and Governance as a thematic area with the aim to contribute to the overall goal of increasing the effective participation and representation of women in leadership and decision-making position in Ethiopia. One of the strategies adopted by the program is to continue supporting key democratic institutions including the NEBE to enhance women’s equal participation in electoral process and influence in decision-making.
The NEBE is an independent entity established in accordance with Article 102 of the Constitution of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia. Since its establishment, the Board has organized different branch offices at both the federal and regional levels including the two administrative cities and conducted the six general elections, two local elections, and seven referendums.
Since 2018, the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE) took an important step in reforming the NEBE as it deemed necessary to strengthen the Ethiopian democracy and to enable citizens to exercise their right to elect by way of free, fair, and peaceful elections; by improving the credibility and implementing capacity of the Board and ensuring the Board’s independence from the influence of any other body. One of the improvements achieved during the 6th general election was efforts made to ensure inclusive electoral process. In the attempt to create an independent and inclusive electoral institution, the electoral legal framework established electoral body providing relatively an equal opportunity between women and men in the selection and appointment of office holders and decision makers at all positions within the NEBE and at all levels. Subsequently, NEBE also took important steps to ensure inclusivity in the electoral process.
Currently, UN Women, and the NEBE launched the production of a documentary film intending to document and communicate the institutional reform process and the positive steps taken by the institution to ensure inclusiveness as well as effort to organize a credible election and contribute to further strengthening of democratic processes in the country.
To this effect, UN Women is planning to engage a national consultant to support the NEBE in the finalization of the production and in the launching of the documentary film.
