DiA members met with representatives of more than 15 NGOs from the region of Prishtina



Prishtinė, 25 July 2013 - Democracy in Action Board members met with representatives of more than 15 NGOs from the region of Prishtina: Drenas, Fushe Kosove, Obiliq, Podujeva and Lipjan. During this meeting DiA invited these NGOs to participate and contribute in the monitoring of the local elections scheduled on Nov 3rd. All representatives of these NGOs expressed readiness to contribute in the observation of these elections.




Shqipe Pantina, member of the DiA board, expressed the need to work in conducting voter education activities in order to have credible elections that are free of irregularities. “The value of the vote is so strong that each citizen needs to ensure that their vote was counted for the value it was given, and we need to work on our mandate to ensure that elections go smoothly and well reported by international organizations” said Pantina.
In the meeting with representatives of the NGOs, lessons were drawn from the previous elections and recommendations were given on how to improve the process for the future. It was concluded that there is a need to observe the entire process, even the transportation, intake of materials to the counts and results center and to have observers outside the polling centers to see whether voters are being pressured in any way.
This meeting was facilitated by center for Policies and Advocacy and Mother Theresa Association.
