Iraqis Train Iraqis In Preparation for Elections
Fact of the Day

Iraq's Coalition of Non-partisan Elections Monitors has trained representatives of non-governmental organizations to monitor the elections. In its most recent training session, members of the non-partisan coalition and 41 representatives from 24 different NGOs attended. In addition, 27 Iraqi elections trainers from South Central Iraq, 33 from Southern Iraq and 22 from Baghdad participated in other NGO-sponsored workshops. In another training initiative, 30 Iraqi journalists attended media and elections training in the Al Basrah governorate. These are just a few examples of Iraqis working to ensure that their elections are free and democratic.
