With the on-going conflict in Côte d’Ivoire over the rightful winner of the November elections, the topic of human rights and elections became a timely theme for the 6th meeting of UN Human Rights Heads of Section in West Africa.

The region is undergoing a series of elections at this time, said Mr. Patrice Vahard.

The Senior Human Rights Advisor with the UN Office in West Africa, and chair of the meeting, spoke to Jocelyne Sambira about what areas were under their watch.
