GOVERNANCE ACTIVITIES

Election Monitoring

Elections plays a vital role to ensure democracy and good governance in a democratic state. Our ultimate goal is to establish good governance, fair trial for all, and a humanist nation.

We have been monitoring elections since 1996. We have produced a strong election monitoring team that monitors the pre and post election environment. Over the last parliamentary elections in 2001 we have deployed more than 10,000 election observer to observe the election throughout the country.
