Elections are the foundation of democracy. Today Chargé d’affaires Elizabeth Rood and USAID Mission Director Peter Wiebler met with local and international election observation organizations. Election observers help deter fraud; expose problems and irregularities; provide an accurate measure of the quality of the election; promote confidence in the process and outcomes; and provide recommendations for improving the process for the next election. The United States is supporting international and local observation missions in the upcoming Presidential elections.
