Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN HL5939, tabled on 23 March 2015

To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they will support the organisation of a European Union Electoral Observation Mission in Burundi ahead of and during the general elections of May and June.

Answered on

26 March 2015

The EU will deploy an electoral observation mission from April 2015. The EU's support for the electoral process, through both the presence of this observation mission and the provision of financial assistance, is contingent on the electoral process being inclusive, transparent, and open to all political parties and actors in a fair manner. The UK supports this approach.
