FEFA's Report on 3rd Phase of Voter Registration Process

The Independent Electoral Commission commenced the third phase of the VR process in six provinces on 13th December 2008 and concluded it on 11th January 2009. Based on the IEC plan, in this phase 124 centers covering 576 stations were established. Based on its action plan for the third phase of voter registration, FEFA managed to observe 70% of the voter registration process in 6 provinces (Nangarhar, Laghman, Khost, Farah, Paktika, and Zabul). Every FEFA observer has managed to observe at least 3 relevant stations of a VR center. So FEFA has effectively managed to observe the third phase of the VR process. Also, 6 provincial master trainers received extensive training at FEFA HQ in Kabul and after receiving training they were deployed to their respective provinces where they conducted one day training for 136 observers, including 42 women. The training provided the observers with the following skills: the importance of observation to the VR process, observation methodology, practical exercises for using the checklists, conducting interviews, reporting system and timeline, etc. The reporting methodology of FEFA requires it’s provincial and district officers and observers to report in three formats: 1- Urgent reports, which is sent to HQ—mostly visa phone-- on issues of serious nature and those that needs immediate corrective measures by IEC. 2- Weekly report based on standard reporting format 3- Reports based on Observation Checklists, once the VR relevant phase is over. This brief report is based on the weekly reporting of the FEFA’s observer teams in the mentioned six provinces. The monitoring team of FEFA upon visiting the field offices verified most of the findings. FEFA’s have regularly shared its findings with IEC through weekly meetings with Mr. Najafi, Barakzi and the head of external relation Mr. Afghanzi. FEFA also conducted follow up meetings with the relevant IEC personal in Kabul to share specific information and physical evidence and submitted its recommendations for improvement of the Process.
