“The two day training will enable participants to learn the rules governing Benin’s electoral process, and also reinforce their monitoring capacities during the electoral period,” Gustave Assah, the spokesman for Benin’s civil society organizations, told Xinhua.

Assah said the training will equally enable participants to effectively monitor the actions of institutions involved in the process of organizing Benin’s presidential elections.

Indeed, he said, Benin’s presidential elections on Feb. 28, 2016 will be held in a context characterized by the existence of a new electoral code whose utilization in this year’s legislative elections posed challenges, especially with regards to application of certain clauses.

Close to 5 million Beninese voters, both inside the country and in the diaspora, will head to the polls on Feb. 28, 2016 to elect the successor of incumbent President Boni Yayi whose second term ends on April 6, 2016. Enditem
