VIGLOJ role in the December 2018 National elections
VIGLOJ is actively involving young people in presidential, legislative and provincial elections scheduled on 23 December 2018.
Important work is being done to sensitise people about the importance of free elections as it is enshrined in the article 21 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Young people have the right to be part of their government by being in it, or choosing the people who are in it.
VIGLOJ has worked tirelessly to educate Butembo community about the use and relevance of electronic machines that will be used in the next elections. The use of this machine was recently both solicited and endorsed by the Commission Electorale Nationale Independante (Congolese National Electoral Commission). VIGLOJ is organizing campaigns about the rationale of free elections and has been massively encouraging Butembo population to fully turn up for this important citizenry duty.
