EISA signs MoU with Political Parties
On 14 September 2010 EISA Mozambique signed the first Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for a 3 year capacity building partnership with the Democratic Movement of Mozambique (MDM), one of the three parties with representatives in the Mozambican Parliament. This agreement falls under the activities of Political Party Strengthening Programme EISA is implementing in four African countries. Under this Programme, EISA will provide assistance to all parliamentary parties in Mozambique in the areas of
- strategic planning
- leadership development
- training of cadres
- policy analysis and development
- constituent relations and
- balance and equity in gender representation.
The MoU was signed by Ismael Mussa, Secretary General of MDM, and Miguel de Brito, EISA Country Director for Mozambique.
Similar MoUs will be signed shortly with the Frelimo and Renamo parties.
