FEFA’s Recommendations for Effective and Functional Use of International Aid

Afghanistan has been receiving vast financial and technical assistance from the international community since the first presidential election in 2014, and the need for such assistance remains tangible and comprehensible, FEFA emphasizes strategic and effective use of this assistance and requests stakeholders to ensure the aid is spent effectively to produce continuous efficiency and measurable results. However, transparency and accountability in the spending of aids is of utmost importance at every stage. FEFA considers the role of international community very momentous in enhancing credibility and institutionalization of election process as a prestigious, accountable and legitimate mechanism and simultaneously in professionalizing the trends related to election process. Taking into account the aforementioned cases, FEFA emphasize a three-dimensional approach to spending aid given by the international community. These three-dimensional approaches are: 1) Institutional development, 2) assuring transparency, and 3) accountability. Paying attention to the mentioned areas could ensure effective and transparent use of donations in future. Additionally, support and technical assistances should not only be provided to one section or particular structure but to overall electoral cycles and election stakeholders; for instance, the civil society organizations, political parties, media or other relevant structures which are engaged in election and can play a substantial role in legitimacy, transparency and credibility of election process. If the EMB and electoral stakeholders have the technical capacity and knowledge of election process, it can undoubtedly play a positive role in improvement of election and effectiveness of the whole process.
