The Public Foundation “Common Cause” will held two trainings for selected trainers who will train the election day observers.
The two-day trainings will be held in Bishkek on September 9-10 and Osh on September 11-12. During the training, trainers will be acquainted with skills and knowledge necessary to deliver the observer trainings in a professional manner. The training topics include election day procedures starting from the preparation for opening and opening of polling stations, voting, counting and tabulation of election results. In addition, the training will focus on rights and responsibilities of observers, including the observer Code of Conduct which all observers will sign to guarantee their professional and non-partisan conduct.
Over 800 citizens have applied to the Common Cause to be engaged as election day observers and the selection process is on-going.
The organization is monitoring all stages of the election process including the pre-election, election day and post-election procedures and processes. The purpose of election monitoring is to provide the citizens and electoral stakeholders with a professional, non-partisan and timely assessment about the compliance with the international standards and domestic legislation, including the information about the potential violations.
The election-monitoring is part of the "Nonpartisan Domestic Observation of the 2020 Parliamentary Elections in the Kyrgyz Republic” project supported by the support from USAID. Alongside election-monitoring, the project encompasses a wide range of activities including voter education and education of journalists.
The mission of the Common Cause Public Foundation is to facilitate the creation of opportunities for citizens to influence the quality of decisions made in the country through public involvement, discourse and oversight.
