NDI Launches Elections Observation

The National Democratic Institute (NDI) is launching a long-term international remote observation of the parliamentary elections. The program will be based on the findings and recommendations of the pre-election report published in August by the Georgia Election Watch.

NDI’s team of analysts includes seven long-term observers and a program director, covering a variety of election-related issues, including: election campaign, election administration, media and information, gender and inclusion issues, and the impact of the coronavirus on elections.

To assess progress and challenges on each of these issues, long-term observers will work remotely with assistants and NDI staff in Tbilisi, using a variety of online information and analysis platforms.

According to the NDI Representation in Georgia, the NDI International Long-Term Remote Observation Mission will carry out its activities impartially and professionally in compliance with the Declaration of Global Principles for Election Observation and Monitoring. This program is supported by the United States Agency for International Development and National Endowment for Democracy.
