The 2010 South Sudan elections
After the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement CPA in 2005, a number of events took place in Sudan. The census in 2008 and Sudan first Democratic Elections in decades was organized in line with the CPA. Elections is seen as one of the measures of democracy; and like any other democratic state, the central government of Sudan organized elections. For Southern Sudan, the election is one of the milestones to the Southern Sudan Referendum and that is the interest of all Southern Sudanese.
It was an uphill task given the fact that Southern Sudan has no infrastructure. However all stakeholders including civil society organizations (CSOs), communities and religious leaders didn’t leave all the task to the government; they knew the suffering that was experienced by all during the decades of dictatorship and lack of democracy. Eve organization for women development is not an exception having just relocated from Khartoum in 2008, volunteered to take part in the Sudan elections. The organization launched the civic and voter education campaign. Practically it was the first time for most Southern Sudanese to experience elections therefore the need to do a proper civic and voter education is necessary for good turn up and results.
As an organization that focuses on women, the primary goal was to get as many women as possible to participate in the elections. The project was funded by IOM and covered the whole of Central Equatoria state. A daunting task as it was, the Organization took up the challenge with passion and hit the road with energy and determination to reach out to the different communities. See photos below.
