Developing on the themes discussed during Mrs Albright meeting at LI Headquarters in London earlier this year, Dr. Minoves talked of the deepening, global cooperation between LI and NDI. Dr Minoves said: “The relationship between LI and NDI is strong. I am glad to return Madeleine Albright’s visit to our headquarters by participating in NDI’s 30th anniversary. Since our meeting in London, our two organizations have helped each other in areas of the world where we are both present, and have converged on issues of human rights. NDI’s latest work on the links between technology, elections and democracy is of particular interest to the LI membership and I foresee many synergies in this area in the future.”
During his visit, Deputy President Minoves also met with senior Democrat Party and NDI politicians. Dr Minoves spoke with former Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Howard Dean, former vice-chair of NDI and current head of the Bridges Institute (an organization working to promote democracy in Africa), Vivian Derryck, NDI board member Michael Steed, and the former Assistant Secretary to President Obama for Western Hemisphere Affairs, Arturo Valenzuela. Among the keynote speakers at the celebratory dinner was Jack Dorsey, Chairman and Founder of Twitter.
Liberal International recently honoured the 10th year anniversary of Madeleine Albright’s “Win with Women” Initiative by organizing a panel discussion on strengthening women’s political participation within the framework of the Women in Parliaments Global Forum. Building on this, Dr Minoves extended an invitation to Mrs Albright to attend LI’s 59th Congress in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
