A coalition of Ethiopian civil associations is getting ready to deploy 45, 000 observers for Ethiopia’s general and parliamentary elections which are scheduled to take place in May, APA learns here Wednesday.
Kassahun Follo, Vice President of the coalition said the associations are in the process of crafting a system whereby domestic observers would monitor the elections with acceptable credibility. He said the coalition is offering training and preparing different manuals in tune with its own code of conduct in a bid to strengthen its execution capacity.
More than 600 individuals are taking part in the training which aims at building the observing capacity of the observers during the process and on the actual day of the election.
Follo said the coalition’s 45, 000 observers, to be deployed at all polling stations across the country, would operate with extreme neutrality.
With regards to the pre-election process so far, Follo said the coalition believes in the existence of fair play that would ensure a peaceful and fair election environment.
