Iraqis Participate in Election Training Seminars
The Iraqi Election Information Network (EIN) Board of Directors participated in a three-day training seminar on observing the Jan. 30 elections. The seminar featured two leaders of election monitoring organizations from Peru and the Philippines who shared their experiences with managing elections in difficult political and security environments. During the seminar, EIN designed an election monitoring plan involving committee development, media strategy, crisis management, election-day activities, and a deployment schedule for election monitors. Iraqis are developing their skills to ensure that election day runs smoothly.
