Nigeria’s democratic political process got a boost recently with help provided by the United States.
近日,尼日利亚的民主政治进程在美国的帮助下得到了大力推动。
U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria Stuart Symington joined more than 40 prominent Nigerian politicians and International Republican Institute, or IRI, President Daniel Twining to launch a new activity supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID,to help political parties adopt better governance practices and improve the quality of political discourse.
美国驻尼日利亚大使斯图尔特·赛明顿与40多位尼日利亚政要及美国国际共和学会(IRI)主席丹尼尔·特宁一起参加了一场新的活动,该仪式由美国国际开发署(USAID)支持,旨在帮助政党采用更好的治理实践、提高政治话语质量。
Implemented for USAID by IRI and Search for Common Ground, the three-year, 5.5-million-dollar Responsive Political Party Program will help the major national political parties in Nigeria improve responsiveness to their constituents.It will also contribute to creating peaceful participation ahead of the upcoming elections.
响应型政党计划由美国国际开发署支持,美国国际共和学会和美国寻求共同立场组织承办,将历时三年,投资550万美元。该计划将帮助尼日利亚的主要国家政党提高其对选民的响应能力。还将有助于在大选即将到来之前营造和平的参与环境。
The activity promises to help parties contesting the upcoming elections to become more representative of the citizenry,and improve the oversight of government programs.
此项计划有望帮助各方政党参与即将到来的大选,使之更能代表公民意愿,同时也能加强对政府方案的监督。
It also aims to increase the frequency and intensity of political party interactions with their constituents,improve communication among party officials, candidates, and officeholders at all levels,and boost the participation of marginalized groups in political processes and within the parties themselves.
计划还旨在提高政党与其选民互动的频率与深度,加强各级政党官员、候选人和公职人员之间的沟通,促进边缘化群体参与国家政治进程、提升其在各自政党内部的参与感。
The Responsive Political Party Program will also help spread the message of peace and non-violence through the electoral process,determine early warning signs of electoral violence,and formulate strategies to mitigate potential violence through conflict assessment in conjunction with political parties and civil society organizations.
响应型政党计划还将通过选举进程,帮助传播和平与非暴力信息,确定选举期间暴力行为迹象的早期预警,并通过与政党和民间社会组织共同进行冲突评估来制定减轻潜在暴力的战略。
“Working with [IRI] on this project, our parties will be stronger and more efficient, vibrant and responsive to the yearnings of Nigerians,”Deputy Senate President Ike Ekeremadu remarked.“I assure you of the cooperation of the National Assembly towards the actualization of this noble initiative.”
“在这个项目上与美国国际共和学会合作,将使我们的政党变得更加强大、高效、充满活力,同时提高政党对尼日利亚人民诉求的响应效率,”尼日利亚参议院副主席Ike Ekweremad说, “我向大家保证,国民议会将为实现这一崇高倡议充分展开合作。”
“If you seek to be followed ... tell the story not only of what is wrong, but what you would do right for the future,”Ambassador Symington told the assembled politicians.“And the greatest ‘right’ you can do is to inspire your members to come together and make Nigeria better.”
“想要赢得人民的拥护……就不仅要承认哪里错了,更要说明未来将怎么才能把事做对了,”赛明顿大使告诉组建的政治家,“而你们应做的最‘对’的事,就是激励党派成员齐心协力,让尼日利亚变得更好。”
