The IDEAS Election Committee is pleased to announce the results of the recent special board election. We congratulate Josephine Watera on her election to the IDEAS Board, and we wish her a happy and successful term in office. Because this election was held following the resignation of a Board Member, Josephine will serve the remainder of the original term: until March 31 2020. We believe she will bring to the Board new ideas and new energy for fulfilling the IDEAS vision.
We would also like to thank the other outstanding candidates who were nominated to stand for election, but who were not successful this time. We know they will continue their strong support of IDEAS and we appreciate their commitment to IDEAS’ work.
Finally, we are grateful to the IDEAS members who voted in this special board election. Below are the final results:
Nominee Gender: Country: Votes
Josephine Watera F Uganda 62
Eddah Kanini Karijo F Kenya 39
John Njovu M Zambia 35
Cush Ngonzo Luwesi M Dem.Rep.of Congo 21
