OSCE Presence supports Albanian Central Election Commission train-the-trainers course for electoral commissioners

Tirana, April 26, 2013

The OSCE Presence in Albania is supporting the Albanian Central Election Commission (CEC) in holding training for 76 trainers, selected by the CEC, on the recently amended Electoral Code and related sublegal acts.

The first session is being held on 26 and 27 April 2013, followed by the second sessions on 29 and 30 April.

The sessions will focus on the role of the Commissions of Election Administration Zones from their inception until the end of the electoral process, covering all stages of the Commissions’ activity.

The trainers will then use their acquired knowledge to train CEAZ members across the country in preparation for the 23 June general elections.

This training is part of the OSCE Presence’s overall technical assistance to the Albanian Central Election Commission.

Such assistance aims to help electoral administration bodies improve their performance and increase their professionalism. The event is also supported by the Council of Europe’s Office in Tirana. /ibna/
