12 January 2016

The Ad Hoc Contact Organ established at the end of the National Consultative Conference of Eritrean Political organizations in Nairobi, Kenya between 27 and 29 November 2015, held its first meeting on December 22, 2015 that was followed by several successive meetings and has now laid out its plan of work on the basis of the tasks that were entrusted to it by the participating organizations. The tasks as stipulated in the Nairobi Declaration are to:

  1. Draft a common vision and program of action, in close consultation with political organizations, for a smooth transition to a democratic order.
  2. Prepare for the next all-inclusive meeting of opposition organizations to discuss ways and means to accelerate democratic transition.

The Ad Hoc Contact Organ has:

  • Extensively deliberated on its action plan;
  • Assigned tasks to its members;
  • Decided on mechanisms that would enable it to effectively communicating with the political opposition organisations as well as the general public, implement its plan of action, increase awareness of the outcomes of the National Consultative Conference and publicise the efforts being made to convene the next all inclusive conference.

Towards this goal, the Ad hoc Contact Organ shall reach out to all political organizations that did not participate in the Consultative Conference, with the aim of explaining the outcomes of the conference so they can be a part of the upcoming all-inclusive conference and its due preparation.
