Libyan female police officers participate in training to protect women voters

The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) announced Sunday the participation of 30 female police officers in a training program organized by the High National Elections Commission (HNEC) to enhance their knowledge of addressing violence directed at women in elections.

The UNDP explained that women represented 50% of registered voters in Libya, therefore; participants were trained to identify and address election-related violence against women in line with national legislation and international human rights standards.

Five female police officers received training on the eMonitor+ platform, a tool designed to enhance the integrity of electoral processes in Libya to effectively address violence, as part of a joint mechanism between the Ministry of Interior of the Government of National Unity (GNU) and the HNEC.

The UNDP says that it is providing, along with the United Nations’ (UN) electoral support team, technical assistance to prepare the HNEC for conducting comprehensive and credible elections for all Libyans.
