Kyrgyz Republic - Assistance in the electoral field - media and electoral disputes

30/07/2017 - 05/08/2017

Bishkek – In the framework of the project “Support to Strengthening Democracy through Electoral Reform in the Kyrgyz Republic” the Venice Commission organised 2 training sessions at the Issyk-Kul lake from 30 July to 5 August.

The first training session was held jointly with a local NGO “Media Development Centre”. It was aimed at journalists who did media monitoring before the Presidential elections of 15 October. They got to know media monitoring methodology, exchange views with experienced trainers and learnt about technical aspects of media monitoring and the specific role of the media analyst during campaigning. As a result of this monitoring, a comprehensive report should be prepared by the trained journalists drawing conclusions regarding the performance of media during the campaigning period.

This training session followed by a training session for judges of the Supreme court and the inter-district court of the city of Bishkek on the adjudication of electoral disputes in light of the Presidential elections on 15 October 2017. This activity was prepared jointly with the Central Election Commission of the Kyrgyz Republic.

The project “Support to Strengthening Democracy through Electoral Reform in the Kyrgyz Republic” is implemented by the Venice Commission with funding provided by the European Union and the Council of Europe.
