Recommendations
1 Consider an internal review of the expected outcomes of the SECJ project with the IEC to confirm a common understanding of project expectations carried over from the SEPJ project to ensure national ownership and manage expectations.
2 Political Party Liaison Council: Discuss the requirement for a formal institutional mechanism with the IEC; if still considered relevant then encourage a formal policy decision and propose a time-bound commitment; furthermore, assist the IEC with convening the initial meeting.
3 Facilitate a training needs assessment for political party capacity building (outsourced to a suitably qualified national or international organization).
4 Identify suitable interventions and support for political party development and capacity building ? generally speaking this would not be the responsibility of an EMB but rather an independent organization.
5 Continue to advocate the adoption and implementation of recommendations in the project Gender Strategy.
