PNG’s Office for the Development of Women (ODW) wants to help women who are thinking about contesting the 2013 Local-level Government (LLG) elections.
As part of this help ODW is supporting the distribution of a Campaign Handbook for potential LLG women candidates that has been prepared by the Centre for Democratic Institutions.
The Handbook is part of a strategy to help women candidates prepare well for the election and increase their chances of success. The advice and checklists contained in the Handbook will help women candidates to make decisions about whether they are ready to stand for election and how to plan their campaigns. The Handbook contains practical information to help potential candidates:
- Part 1: Understand the role of LLG councilors, presidents and mayors
- Part 2: Understand LLG election laws
- Part 3: Thinking clearly about why they want to stand for election and what they have to offer their communities and
- Part 4: Preparing a winning election campaign.
Contact the Office for the Development of Women in Port Moresby for more information – text or phone them on (+675) 7064 0560 or (+675) 7064 0562.
You can access the Handbook in electronic form in English (below) and Tok Pisin (above) in the link provided. Due to the heavy size of the publication, we have broken the publication down into 3 parts for ease of downloading.
