Electoral Governance and Reforms Project

Speeches Shim

This project improves governance of key institutions and increases citizen voice and responsibility by enhancing dialogue and advocacy for key new reforms by civil society, the legislature, and the executive branch, in addition to supporting the implementation and enforcement of key recently approved reforms.

The objective of this activity is to support the development and implementation of key reforms and to increase the transparency and accountability of electoral processes in Guatemala. The activity will provide technical assistance, capacity building, and opportunities for dialogue to Guatemala’s Electoral Tribunal, Congress, civil society, and political parties. The project’s initial focus is to support new reforms to Guatemala’s Law on Elections and Political Parties, encourage judicial sector reforms, and strengthen the capacity of the Electoral Tribunal to monitor political party compliance, administer out-of-country voting, and oversee two potential public referenda.

This project is expected to run from June 12, 2017 through September 30, 2021 with an estimated total USAID investment of $11,500,000.

USAID’s implementer for this project is Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening (CEPPS).
