FREE AND FAIR ELECTION FORUM OF AFGHANISTAN

14 YEARS OF CIVIC SERVICES


FEFA will undertake the largest domestic election observation for the 2014 Presidential and Provincial elections.

The Free and Fair Elections Foundation of Afghanistan (FEFA) and the Embassies of Canada, Denmark, Germany and the UK signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on the FEFA election observation programme for the 2014 Presidential and Provincial elections. FEFA’s electoral observation programme will hire up to 10,000 observers during the 2014 elections in Afghanistan. This undertaking will be the largest single domestic observation mission ever in the country. 2014 will be a pivotal milestone in Afghanistan’s political transition, as the country heads to the polls to choose their first new leader since 2001. The International Community is working closely with the Afghan Government to promote a smooth electoral process. Independent observation will be a crucial factor in encouraging an election that is transparent, inclusive and credible. The Embassies of Canada, Denmark, Germany and the UK signed the MoU with FEFA, which expresses their support for FEFA’s election observation project. Together, they have committed to providing over $3.8 million funding to cover all of FEFA’s electoral observation phases. “To make our fragile democracy work, as Afghans it is our responsibility and core national obligation to increase the transparency of the electoral process and ensure its success” said Nader Nadery Chairman of FEFA. “We are grateful that our international partners are standing with us in our quest for a more credible, free and fair elections.” FEFA is an Afghan non-governmental organization which has been the largest organisation involved in election observations in Afghanistan, with near nationwide coverage. In the 2009 Presidential elections, FEFA was able to field observers in 65% of the country. For 2014, its ambition is to increase that coverage to 70%, including some of the most remote parts of the country.
