COVID-19 updates

Responding to the World Health Organization declaration of a global pandemic, in 2020, an operational guidance document was developed for HNEC regarding the conduct of a massive operation with processes that require personal interaction, such as elections, while maintaining safety and hygiene standards and mitigating risk of infection. Election procedures were amended with a view to maintain electoral integrity and principles, while prioritizing health and safety.
