A non-profit social enterprise, Paradigm Initiative has demanded respect for rights during election in Congo. This was contained in a press release by its Communication Officer, Valery Njiaba.
Paradigm Initiative (PIN), a non-profit social enterprise that builds ICT-based support systems has not only advocated for digital rights and inclusion in Africa, but also noted that the Republic of Congo will organize elections on 9 March, 2021. And in the context of this election, “it’s concerned about the protection of human rights.”
PIN therefore, recommended the followings:
1. The government must keep the internet on during elections and allow for access to information.
2.The government must educate and encourage the participation of vulnerable groups on the use, if any, of technology in the voting process.
3.The government must open up space for the media to perform their mandate.
4. The government must proactively disclose critical information to inform the electorate adequately in relation to the electoral process.
