“We cannot underestimate the role of women in shaping our nation and their participation in electoral processes is crucial for a well-functioning democracy and the overall development of our society,” stated Sandram.

He added CCJP wants to support Malawi electoral Commission (MEC) in reaching it’s target of 10 million registered voters by helping in civic and voter education across the diocese.

He further said the commission’s hope is that more women are going to come out both as voters and candidates for the elections.

Pedro Kampala,one of the participants, welcomed CCJP’s efforts to promote gender equality and women’s involvement in electoral processes.

“Our society thrives when we have diverse voices at the table and Women have unique insights and perspectives that enrich our decision-making processes,” said Kampala

Kampala said by encouraging and empowering women to participate in elections and other political processes, we are not only promoting gender equality but also fostering a more inclusive and just society.

CCJP Director of Social Development and Industries, Brian Odhiambo highlighted the organization’s long-standing commitment to promoting social justice and human rights.

He emphasized that the call for increased women’s participation in electoral processes aligns with CCJP’s broader goal of creating a society built on equality, justice, and respect for all.
