Niger: Code of Conduct Encourages a Peaceful Vote on Jan. 31

Thirty-six political parties and two independent candidates in Niger have signed a code of conduct that encourages parties and their supporters to campaign honestly and respect the outcome of Jan.31 presidential and legislative elections. The polls will mark a return to democratic rule following last February's coup d’état that removed autocratic President Mamadou Tandja from office. NDI worked initially with 16 parties to draft the code, based on examples used successfully in other countries.
Abdourahamane Ousmane, president of the National Communications Observatory, officiated at the Jan.25 signing ceremony. The observatory was established by Niger's military government to monitor balanced media coverage of the parties' electoral campaigns and to ensure free speech during the country's transition to democratic rule.

IN-COUNTRY PERSPECTIVES
Ukrainian Women Win Local Office Against The Odds
When Zinayida Galchynska was diagnosed with breast cancer several years ago, she was directing a health-care organization in Zaporizhzhya, in southeastern Ukraine. Already a community leader, she vowed that if she survived she would run for office, a move she believed would allow her to have a larger impact on decision-making in her community, particularly on health care issues. She did survive and set out to make good on her promise, though she knew the political odds were against her.
