2nd Edition Electoral Commissions in West Africa – A Comparative Study

In addition to identifying similarities and differences in the set-up, roles and functioning of national electoral commissions in the 15 member states of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), this second edition of the comparative study highlights recent developments and changes in legal frameworks for elections in some countries in the region.

Similarly, this new edition provides more relevant examples from recent electoral experiences in West Africa. By providing lessons learnt and best practices, the study shall assist those who seek to improve electoral processes and who aspire to introduce electoral norms and higher electoral standards in West Africa. Authors – Mathias Hounkpe and Prof. Ismaila Madior Fall.
