This project aims to support the structures of political parties and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to implementation 35% Affirmative Action stated in the National Gender Policy (NGP) 2006 in 5 states in South- Eastern Nigeria by 2018. This project was conceived due to the consistent low representation of women in elective positions in Nigeria. INEC Results from the 2015 general elections indicated a dismal representation of women compared to men. At the national level, only 1 woman contested for the presidency position against 14 men. At the upper legislative chambers, only 8 women representing 8.72% out of the 109 senators and 24 out of the 360 house members are women. At the state level women represented only about 9% in the total number of candidates aspiring for various positions across the nation. Across the 5 states in eastern Nigeria where this project will be implemented, women make up only 6-7% of the number of serving lawmakers. Through capacity building, media engagements, video documentary, sensitization and lobbying and creation of Women in Governance Website, this project will ensure that 35% Affirmative Action is fully implemented in Ebonyi, Enugu, Imo, Abia, and Anambra States. This project commenced in 2016 and will end in 2018.
