Meg Munn elected Chair of Westminster Foundation for Democracy

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn has today been elected Chair of the Westminster Foundation for Democracy at its Board meeting in London. She takes over from Hugh Bayley MP, whose term as a Governor of the organisation is shortly coming to an end.

 

Meg said on becoming Chair:

 

‘I am extremely honoured to have been elected Chair of the Westminster Foundation for Democracy. As a Member of Parliament I knew of its important work in encouraging and strengthening democracy, and as a Foreign Office Minister I saw examples of their work around the world. I look forward to working closely with the Board and staff to meet the challenges ahead.’

 

Established in 1992, the Westminster Foundation for Democracy works to achieve sustainable political change in emerging democracies, and is supported by all the political parties represented in the UK Parliament. It is an independent public body sponsored by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, from which it receives annual funding of 4.1 million. It has successfully bid for contracts from other bodies, including the Department for International Development (DFID) and the United Nations.

 

The Foundation works with and through partner organisations, seeking to strengthen the institutions of democracy, principally political parties (through the work of the UK political parties), parliaments and the range of institutions that make up civil society non-governmental organisations (NGOs), trade unions and free media.
