Statement by Ambassador Moller on the Launching of Election Texting Transparency Technology in Guinea
"The United States is committed to ensuring that these are the freest and most transparent elections in Guinea's history. This innovative initiative will help to make this vision a reality. Every citizen will be able to actively participate in protecting their votes and the integrity of the process. Democracy is about every person taking the power that is offered to them and helping to create a wave of change. By providing voters with the means to protect their votes, we have helped to place the future of their country in the palm of their hands. This technology will allow CENI, local and international observers, and security forces to respond to incidents in real time. Those who would hope to manipulate the results of these polls should take head. Their actions will be followed by every citizen and be shown to all the world. The world is truly watching these elections. The United States is a strong friend of democracy and we will continue to support Guineans democratic aspirations throughout the election period and beyond."
