Ethiopia Signs $4.3m Agreement with Sweden

The Kingdom of Sweden is supporting the national election of Ethiopia with 4.3 million dollars that will be used for the programme entitled “Supporting Elections for Ethiopia’s Democracy Strengthening Project,” which is going to be implemented by the United Nations Development Programme between 2019-2022. The project aims at strengthening such democratic and oversight institutions as the House of Peoples' Representatives, National Election Board of Ethiopia and the Office of the Federal Auditor General to enable them to perform core functions for improved accountability, participation and representation to realise democratic elections and gender equality in the country. The agreement was signed on October 21, 2019, between the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia and the government of Sweden at a ceremony held at the Ministry of Finance.
