Election Reporting and Monitoring Education

Given that Myanmar’s political landscape is undergoing sweeping changes and elections planned at the near end of 2015 this year, Anfrel believes it is crucial to empower the civil society and the media to effectively observe/monitor the 2015 electoral process. Having active and engaged media and election observation groups that are capable of objective analysis and reporting about the electoral cycle will be able to determine the legitimacy of the elections and to prevent possible electoral fraud and misconduct by increasing the likelihood of discovery and reporting of misdeeds and raising the political awareness of such misconduct by creating a better informed voting public. The public is the other bookend that needs to be engaged and educated about the coming elections through election reporting by the media and election monitoring by the civil society groups, what they mean both to the country and to the individual.
