The Electoral Commission has begun approving local and international poll observer groups to monitor the presidential Parliamentary, Local council and special Interest Groups elections 2020/2021.

The criteria that election observer groups and individuals must meet before their applications are considered include the name of the poll monitoring group, the leadership and composition of the group and their experience in election observation together with their passport photos, Passport / National IDs as well as their contact information.

Every Member will have their details captured individually into the electronic system and must include their group Application Number assigned to the group on registration. This therefore means groups must first register their organisation before capturing their members. An Organisation should first register and then register its staff under its account.

Only complete profile meeting requirements for being an observer will be considered.

Election observation is fundamentally an exercise in support of democracy. Election observers serve as impartial watchdogs who can assess whether the results of an election truly reflect the will of the people. Genuine democratic elections do not guarantee democratic governance, but are a prerequisite for it. They provide political legitimacy for elected leaders and a foundation from which to govern, reducing the scope for non-democratic challenges to power. They serve to resolve competition for political power peacefully and are more likely to lead to stability than non-democratic forms of succession.
