CEMOT stakeholders meet for evaluation report validation

The Coalition on Election Monitoring and Observation in Tanzania (CEMOT) project team has been advised to take full advantage of recommendations made on their evaluation report to achieve greater outcomes in interventions aimed for future general elections.

The remark was made by stakeholders who attended a one-day validation meeting of the evaluation report of the CEMOT project held in Dar es Salaam in mid May. Coordinated by The Foundation for Civil Society (FCS) the validation meeting aimed at assessing the extent to which objectives of the project were achieved during the entire period of its operation.

Giving his remarks, Dr. Benson Bana, from Tanzania Election Monitoring Committee (TEMCO) appreciated the contribution from key stakeholders including Development Partners, government and others who enabled the 2015 electoral monitoring and observation work.

Presenting the draft evaluation report, the lead consultant, Mr. Chinedu Nwagu, said it was crucial to acknowledge the various challenges faced such as inadequate time for planning and preparation of the project. He said since project adoptation was delayed, there was little time for internal planning, evolution and adjustments. 

He was also of the view that election interventions should not be treated as one-time events but as a process to allow greater outcomes in future elections. 

Since CEMOT is a coalition formed by the Tanzania Election Monitoring Committee (TEMCO) and the Tanzania Civil Society Consortium for Election Observation (TACCEO), the lead consultant advised that the two locally based election observers need to create an opportunity for long-term citizens’ engagement in democratic process by going beyond elections, and endeavour to gain public empathy to rally behind key national issues.
