In commemoration of the International Day for Democracy, the Citizens Democracy Watch Seychelles (CDWS) hosted the first public conversation around corruption, a very charged topic at the moment. The workshop which was facilitated by the US Embassy, brought together politicians, policy makers, civil servants, media, constitutional appointees and NGO leaders. “Democracy is only as strong as the political participation of citizens and this must be increased and encouraged. The ‘space for civil society’ should not only exist, but should also be occupied effectively and constructively. We urge all citizens to engage in the dialogue and actions that will contribute to a more peaceful, just and stable world.” the Chairperson for CDWS, Mrs. Eline Moses reiterated.
