Dakar, Senegal – Beninese MPs participated in a regional conference on political dialogue between ruling and opposition parties on 26-29 May 2014 in Dakar. The exchange was an initiative of AWEPA’s strategic partner the Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy (NIMD), and brought together MPs from Benin, Senegal, Burundi and Mali to discuss best practices to fostering constructive relations between government and opposition parties.
The Beninese participants had been selected from two parliamentary groups supporting the government and from two parliamentary opposition groups. The working visit will have a follow-up in the joint AWEPA/NIMD programme “Bridging the gap between political parties and the Parliament in Benin“, with the launching of an interparty dialogue process in Benin.
