Tahrir Lounge presents the citizen’s role in election monitoring

Tahrir Lounge hosted training for about 200 young political, coalition, and initiative leaders on citizen monitoring in the program “Local Election Monitoring”. The programs purpose was to create and provide local jobs in election monitoring and simultaneously ensuring fair working electoral procedures. There was also an aim to encourage fair campaign practices, to raise voting public awareness about elections, maximize the role of the participating public, and to support the democratic transition. The thought is that through capacity building, development, and training of a local group dedicated to democratic participation, work, activities and rules can be developed around the parliamentary electoral monitoring.
