L’observation des élections est une preuve très visible de la détermination de l’Union européenne à soutenir la démocratie et à promouvoir le respect des droits de l’homme à travers le monde. Ce processus contribue à renforcer les institutions démocratiques, à instaurer la confiance des citoyens dans les processus électoraux et à prévenir la fraude, l’intimidation et la violence, en particulier dans les régions fragiles, en développement ou sortant d’un conflit. Il complète également d’autres objectifs clés de la politique étrangère de l’UE, en particulier la consolidation de la paix.
