The Pacific Islands, Australia and New Zealand Electoral Administrators Network (PIANZEA) is a close association of Pacific electoral administrators who, in the Pacific spirit, collectively encourage the free flow of electoral information among member countries and provide assistance where possible.
In 2021 PIANZEA Network members signed a memorandum of understanding regarding the role of the PIANZEA Secretariat in providing support and assistance to the PIANZEA Network.
On 27-28 May and 3-4 June 2021, PIANZEA delivered a virtual BRIDGE workshop on strategic planning for electoral management. International IDEA collaborated with PIANZEA on the delivery of the workshop. The workshop ran over four half days and was PIANZEA’s second virtual BRIDGE workshop.
After a long and productive relationship with face-to-face BRIDGE, the Covid-19 pandemic necessitated the first virtual BRIDGE workshop for the Pacific Island, Australia and New Zealand Electoral Administrators’ (PIANZEA) network.
