H.E. Professor Dr. Anton Caragea

The Head of International Observers Team detailed the long-term monitoring methodology.

The election observation mission for the Kingdom of Cambodia 2018 will cover the political campaign, pre-election preparations, election day – polling, counting and tabulation of results – and the complaints and appeals process as well as the announcement of results.

This will include a thorough analysis of the legal framework, the work of the election administration, campaign activities, the conduct of the media in covering the elections, and the mechanisms for electoral disputes.

The mission will meet election stakeholders, including government officials, election administration bodies, candidates and representatives from political parties, members of civil society and the media, the judiciary, amongst others.

Shortly after election day, the mission will issue a statement containing its preliminary findings.

A final report, including a comprehensive assessment of all aspects of the electoral process and with possible recommendations for future elections, will be released several weeks later announced Professor Dr. Anton Caragea.

How do you make an observation mission?

Election observation gives the opportunity to assess an electoral process according to international standards. The members of World Electors Monitors Organization (WEMO) are leading global actors in providing technical electoral assistance complementary to election observation.

This dual form of election support constitutes a significant contribution to the promotion of governance and development objectives.

What is an observation mission?

An observation mission assesses all aspects of the electoral process, its constitutional and legal framework, the delimitation of constituencies, the registration of voters and candidates, the training of election staff, voter education, media coverage, the campaign and the preparations for election day, as well as the appeals process.

On election day, observers visit pooling stations in order to observe the opening, voting, counting and aggregation of results.

What are the principles of an electoral monitoring mission?

Its fundamental principles are full coverage, impartiality, transparency and professionalism. Its ultimate objective is to become superfluous by entrenching democracy deep within each nation through the development of national capacities.

Its main goals are the legitimization of an electoral process, where appropriate, and the enhancement of public confidence in the electoral process to deter fraud, to strengthen respect for human rights, and to contribute to conflict resolution.
