Côte d’Ivoire /
Daily press briefing by the office of the spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General

 

WASHINGTON, USA, August 12, 2008/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Yesterday in Abidjan, representatives of the UN mission in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI) delivered a first batch of electoral material to the Ivorian Government. The package, which includes some 1,500 electoral kits, was transported by air from the UN logistical centre in Brindisi, Italy.  The equipment should help the technical operator for the elections to fast-track the identification process.

 

Abou Moussa, the mission’s Principal Deputy Special Representative, said the delivery shows the UN’s determination to help start a rapid launch of the identification drive.  He added that the mission would also help to meet the remaining logistical challenges, including the recruitment and training of electoral workers and the rehabilitation of the central identification site and some 70 other local sites.  And there is more in a press release upstairs.
