Timor-Leste is divided into 13 districts, 65 sub-districts, 442 sucos (villages) and 2225 aldeias (hamlets). The Suco election determines the community leaders of each village. The country has a strong tradition of community power structure and decision-making process, albeit with almost a complete absence of women’s participation. Traditionally, the political, ritual and conflict mediation in communities has been the domain of men.

 

To ensure women’s participation in decision-making, the National Parliament and the Government adopted affirmative action policies for the 2009 Community Elections through the reservation of seats for women. This resulted in a large number of women elected in the village councils.

 

To increase voter’s participation and awareness in the 2009 Community Elections I designed and developed an electoral campaign focusing on voting rights, the role and responsibilities of the voters, the relationship between elections and democracy and the secrecy of the ballot. The project gave particular emphasis to the empowerment of women as candidates and the importance of their vote.
