Popular Consultation

This year marks the 10-year anniversary since the Popular Consultation was held in Timor-Leste (formally known as East Timor) on 30 August 1999. To commemorate this important anniversary, UNMIT is assisting the Presidency with a national unity campaign reflecting on the courageous achievement of the Timorese people to exercise their right to self-determination in 1999, linking this with the spirit required to building lasting peace and prosperity in Timor-Leste. More >>>
