Electoral system which is widely trusted by the citizens
is significant for strengthening democracy in Pakistan.
At present the constitutional, legal and administrative
process for elections in the country have many short
comings compared to international standards followed
for transparency, independence and fairness of
elections. Therefore, for the greater transparency and
legitimacy of future general elections electoral reforms
in Pakistan are critically important.
Based on findings of election observers and
stakeholder’s consultation, FAFEN (Free and Fair
Election Network) has proposed necessary electoral
reforms which cover the pre, post and election day
processes for free, fair and transparent elections in
DERG (District Electoral Reforms Group) formed in
Lahore, Kasur and Sheikho Pura have been given a
critical role to popularize and to advocate their voices
for effective electoral reforms. It is in this context, CPDI
has arranged three days training of DERG members to
enhance their capacity on proposed reforms and their
role in the advocacy campaign for it.
