The Coalition of Ethiopian Civil Society Organizations for Elections (CECOE) a collaboration of networks of Civil Society Organizations with focus on electoral support in Ethiopia through promoting citizens’ participation and ensuring that electoral processes are free, fair, and credible. Driven by our desire to serve in the prevention, mitigation and management of election-related conflicts and potential violence in the run up to, and following the coming elections, we work in all regions and city administrations to enhance the institutional capacity that enables civil society organizations to engage in voters and civic education and election monitoring and observations in collaboration with the NEBE, other government bodies and donors. The Board comprises the Ethiopian Civil Society Forum (ECSF), Inter-Africa Group (IAG), Ethiopian Lawyers Association (ELA), Coalition of Christian Relief and Development Associations (CCRDA), Network of Ethiopian Women’s Associations (NEWA), Consortium of Civic and Voters Education Actors (CCVEA) and Ethiopian National Disabilities Associations Network (ENDAN).
