ALDA and LDA Georgia part of a study visit on support to elected women officials in Strasbourg



Nino Tvaltvadze, LDA Georgia delegate, arrived yesterday in Strasbourg as member of a delegation of women locally elected officials from Georgia, who benefited from the project “Capacity Development of Women Candidates and Elected Officials in Georgia” of the Council of Europe.

This project is part of the broader programme of electoral assistance to Georgia ahead of parliamentary (2012), presidential (2013) and local (2014) elections” funded by Swiss Federation and Norway. Thirty-four female candidates from all over Georgia received trainings to strengthen their campaigning capacities ahead of June 2014 local elections.

The study visit was the opportunity to meet with Ms Maria Giannakaki (Greece, SOC), member of the Committee on Equality and Non-Discrimination of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, representatives of the secretariat of the Gender Equality Commission and the secretariat of the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities. Furthermore, the delegation has shared experiences with their peers from Alsace (photo).
It is expected that the LDA Georgia takes part in the follow-up to the project as project implementer in Kutaisi and its surroundings.
