STRATEGY #7: Opening Space for Political Participation and Good Governance

The Rwanda National Congress advocates and supports a variety of measures to liberalize citizen‟s participation in politics, including the following:

  • Review of laws that limit the freedom of political parties to register and to function freely and without fear of repression
  • Fostering the development of a vibrant, independent, diverse, and responsible civil society, especially including independent human rights organizations and an independent media
  • Establishing mechanisms to ensure free and fair elections, including an independent and inclusive national electoral commission, and to ensure the independent exercise of political party financing
