Seven non-governmental organizations came together to create the Civic Coalition for Free and Fair Elections Coalition 2007 today. The seven organizations - Association for Participatory Democracy (ADEPT), Center CONTACT, the League for Defense of Human Rights, the Association for Moldovan Legal Clinics, the National Youth Council of Moldova, the Independent Journalism Center and the Association of Independent Press - will unite their efforts to monitor General Local Elections this year, as a key democratic element contributing to Moldova’s European integration. The Coalition’s activities will be strictly non-partisan and will include short-term and long-term observation of the election campaign; monitoring media coverage of the elections; and civic education for voters and the public servants who conduct elections.
The seven founding members created the Coalition Council – Coalition 2007’s governing body. The Coalition is open for new members – representatives of non-governmental organizations from Moldova that will sign the Charter for Free and Fair Elections and follow the principles of Coalition’s Regulation. They are welcome to contact the Secretary in order to apply for membership. The Central Election Commission, international organizations supporting the democratic elections process and independent media outlets both from Moldova and abroad are welcome to participate as observers.
The League for Defense of Human Rights, the Association of Independent Press and the National Youth Council of Moldova are elected by the Council as members of the Executive Committee, which is in charge of Coalition’s current activities.
