According to her their visit has showed that Cape Verde is ready for their upcoming elections and has demonstrated political maturity from what they have observed so far.

In an interview via mobile phone, she noted that their Wednesday, September 22, 2021 visits took them to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the office in charge of election materials as things were transparently   structed and organised.

“We were impressed and confident, Cape Verde should be a bench mark for all ECOWAS Countries to follow. The type of system I am not too sure if it’s the Portuguese style or whether it has to do with the size of the country”.

She further stated that the team also visited a third intuition, ECOWAS Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE).
