Namibia: Capacity of political parties

2009 Manual and training

EISA was commissioned by the Namibia Institute for Democracy (NID) to provide training to political parties. A tailor-made training manual entitled Strengthening Political Party Representatives in Namibia was developed for the NID. This manual focused on five main topics namely, political parties and their functions; conflict and conflict management; leadership; external regulations of parties in Namibia and poll watching. Ten training workshops were conducted for 13 political parties ahead of the November 2009 elections in Namibia.
