In June 2020 a cooperative agreement with USAID was signed, which marked the opening of the country office specifically for the implementation of a program to assess the integrity of the 2020 presidential and legislative elections in Côte d'Ivoire through the deployment of an international in partnership with the Carter Center.


The main objective of the EISA EOM is to help build the confidence of Ivorian citizens in the 2020/1 Presidential and National Assembly electoral processes and to raise the level of acceptance of electoral results through a systemic and independent assessment of the electoral process. The Program aims to contribute to the credibility of the 2020 elections by objectively, independently and rigorously monitoring, evaluating and reporting on all phases of the electoral process in accordance with regional, continental and international standards and principles governing elections.
