Recommendations
1 Donor assistance to future elections should focus on the value added from international experts- ensuring international best practices are known and applied, helping to build professional skills within the electoral administrative structure, and improving institutional and operational systems. Basic election administration costs, including training, should be the responsibility of the GoI.
2 UNDP should continued to provide assistance to the national and local electoral process with a long term development perspective that looks at the legal and institutional framework, decentralization, institutional systems, and their implications on electoral administration and budgets. There should be a continued role for the KPU in the forth coming local elections, both to assist the subnational KPUs with the expertise gained over the past two years of experience and assistance, and to reinforce its own institutional capacity for the next national election.
3 UNDP should continue to support to voter education as part of longer term civic education programmes, including education on what voters should expect from their new political system and how it should work. Education should also be provided to the newly elected representatives as part of longer term good governance support programmes
4 An assessment of domestic observation and monitoring should be done before any more assistance is provided for domestic monitoring. However, UNDP should consider providing strategic support and capacity building to credible advocacy CSOs for post-election monitoring of the newly elected officials and the functioning of the new political system. This should be conceived within the context of a long term democracy and governance programme.

This is implemented in the Election MDP project. The approach of the project is to develop the capacity of the electoral management body on a continues basis not only for the preparation election event but also on the whole cycle of the election

We are building the capacity of the election monitoring body (BAWASLU) especially in developing a concept on participatory monitoring including developing the awareness of the voters in monitoring any election event.
