The UK government has pledged $945,000 for the July election. Two-thirds will go
to the National Election Committee (NEC) with the remainder distributed to civil
society initiatives. The UNDP will be responsible for the dispersal of funds. At
the March 26 handover ceremony, UNDP representative Dominique Ait
Ouyahia-McAdams praised the NEC's efforts during voter registration, and said
further support from the international community was needed to ensure an
international standard in the election. UNDP has collated $2.9 million for the
