Tahrir Lounge raises election awareness

Tahrir Lounge was joined by a group of experts and researchers from the National Council for Human Rights to work on a program called \"A B Elections\" which includes a chain of workshops. These workshops focused on electoral system concepts and definitions, the breakdown of votes and seats in the parliament, practical voter advice, and an election simulation to experience a run through of Election Day. Every workshop had 70-80 participants, with a final participant turn out of about 1500 male and female youth leaders so far. The workshop stressed the importance of citizen awareness and participation in the upcoming elections, so much so that by the end of the program a group of participants organized informational meetings about the elections in their streets, towns and youth centers.
