Their report correctly states that the elections enjoyed a very high turnout rate well above 85 percent of the electorate. This turnout is not only evidence to our Nation’s commitment to democracy but inspires us to continue our work despite the democratic decline our country is... 28/04/2022 | 17:00:32 Thank you, Chair.
