Enhancing the Capacity of Electoral Officers

Training the electoral officials and relevant stakeholders is an essential part of each election. Hence, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) – the Lebanese Elections Assistance Project (LEAP), supported the Ministry of Interior and Municipalities (MoIM) in the development and conduct of electoral procedure trainings for polling officials.

 

UNDP LEAP training experts assisted the MoIM in developing and implementing a cascade training in order to build the capacity of polling officials on electoral procedures. From February to April 2018, 810 sessions were conducted nationwide, and over 15,000 polling officers were trained. This training played a significant role in ensuring that election procedures are implemented in accurate and consistent ways throughout every polling station nationwide.

 

The sessions tackled many subjects including the opening and closing procedures of the polling station, simulation on the voting process, use of pre-printed ballots and counting procedures. In the same context, UNDP LEAP developed and distributed several training materials including guidebooks/manuals, and electoral law.

 

Within the same framework, the project provided support to the training of the Judges and members of the Registration Committees. The objective of the training is to enhance the participants’ knowledge on their tasks as per the new electoral law, particularly those related to the tabulation and aggregation of results, and to the electronic results management system. In addition, UNDP LEAP developed short training video clips in this regard.
LEAP is funded by EU and USAID.
