The purpose of this decision is to ensure that Zambian citizens take part in credible, robust elections and that there is greater public participation in electoral processes (particularly women, youth and disabled).
The EU will contribute to the strengthening of electoral processes in Zambia by ensuring that Zambian citizens take part in credible elections and that there is greater public participation in electoral processes (particularly women, youth and persons with disabilities).
