The Organization of American States (OAS) and the Central Electoral Board of the Dominican Republic signed an agreement today to promote the quality of the electoral processes of the Dominican electoral body in accordance with the standards of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), whose high standards are recognized by the international community.

The Chair of the Board, Román Jáquez, stressed that the initiative will allow working under the electoral standard ISO 54001, which complies with a series of international standards to carry out transparent electoral processes. "We are sure that this agreement will strengthen electoral integrity, democracy, institutions and ultimately the electoral system of the Dominican Republic," said Jáquez.

For his part, the Secretary General of the OAS, Luis Almagro, recalled the joint work carried out both in the field of electoral observation and technical cooperation in the country, highlighting the link between the recommendations presented by the OAS Electoral Observation Missions and the content of this Agreement. "We are pleased that technical cooperation mechanisms are being established to carry out a diagnosis and analysis related to ISO standards regarding electoral technology, information security and the quality of electoral processes in general," said Secretary General Almagro, who congratulated the Board for its "willingness to join efforts that contribute to institutional strengthening."

The signing ceremony was held at the OAS headquarters in Washington, D.C., and was attended by the ambassadors of the Dominican Republic to the White House, Sonia Guzmán and the OAS, Josué Fiallo, among other authorities.
