2011 Elections

Mokhtar Trifi, President of the Tunisian League for the Defense of Human Rights (known by its French acronym, LTDH), announced yesterday during a press briefing held at LTDH headquarters in Tunis, the launch of a national observatory to monitor the upcoming elections by a coalition of civil society groups.

The observatory will follow the electoral process in all stages of registration results and electoral disputes. This includes giving observations and recommendations designed to improve the performance of all agents in the elections.

Several other associations such as the National Union of Tunisian Journalists, the Association of Tunisian Women for Research on development, Judges Association and the National Council for Liberties and the League of Women Voters of Tunisia will be involved.

Following the suspension of the electoral lists of candidates, there will be a complex process that often provokes protests and even can cause a drop in the lists. The role of the observatory is to monitor these conflicts. This phase will be followed by the election campaign, which will also raise a number of conflicts between groups. The task of the observatory for the elections shows how it relates to the electoral administration in response to the need for equality between candidates in time and space.

To secure these functions, the observatory works in collaboration with the associations allied with it to prepare a list of the names of trainers who will train observers. The basic requirement in their choice is the independence of all parties. About 80 persons will train a large number of observers, up to six thousand in total. They will be distributed to various states of the republic in order to ensure coverage of the largest possible number of voting stations.
