An Overview of the short-term Recommended Package of the Special Electoral Reform Commission

The Independent Special Electoral Reform Commission carried out a national mission on electoral reform to come up with the short-term electoral reform package. FEFA welcome the attempts and performance of every members of the Special Electoral Reform Commission (SERC) and hope them more success in their working areas. FEFA as a technical election observation organization which has experience of observing national and international elections, consecutively shared its technical recommendation with the SERC. FEFA reviewed and scrutinized the contents of short-term electoral reform package prepared by the SERC. Preparation of voters list, increment of women quota in elective seats, changing of electoral system, the mechanism on handling the complaints, revision on polling centers and voters access to polling centers, new criteria for employment of staff at the electoral commissions are the positive points of the recommended package. FEFA appreciate the positive points of package and believe the implementation above mentioned points is the first step toward electoral reform process but the issues like establishment of Transparency Committee, classification of constituencies, the Selection Committee, the issues relating to secretariat of the commission, the relationship among two commissions and the relation among electoral commissions and their provincial offices are not very clear in the package.
