ECES will work closely with EFEAC, including the provision of specific trainings on the various themes of the electoral cycle.
This initiative is part of the support to ECCAS offered by the European Union through the PAPS II project (Support Project for Peace and Security), the development of Centres of Excellence to provide training and capacity building of military personnel, police and civilian area.
EFEAC will work closely with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of the Democratic Republic of Congo in order to fulfill its missions.
