OAS Inaugurates Meeting of Inter-American Electoral Authorities in Peru

In his greeting to the participants from 23 countries of the Hemisphere that will meet until tomorrow, Tuesday, November 25 to discuss the organization of elections and exchange good practices on the issue, Ambassador De Zela, representing Secretary General Insulza said that "as electoral authorities, you have the ability to shape the future of your institutions. The discussions that will be generated will benefit from the wealth of diversity of our political and electoral, presidential and parliamentary systems, and strengthen the interactions between our nations."

The official of the multilateral institution recalled that one of the main objectives consecrated in the Charter of the OAS is the promotion and consolidation of democracy, as their effective exercise supports the principle of solidarity shared by the countries of the Americas. For this reason, he highlighted the nearly four decades of electoral observation missions carried out by the institution and described how they have evolved in their form and its mission, adjusting to the political and social changes experienced by the Hemisphere over this period.
