This week, 13 electoral staff from the High National Elections Commission of Libya (HNEC) and experts from the UN Electoral Support Team to Libya, which includes capacities from UNSMIL and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), are coming together in Djerba, Tunisia for a technical workshop intended to strengthen management of electoral datasets in Libya.
The workshop, which takes place between 01 and 04 March, focuses on establishing the tools necessary to identify and effectively manage voting locations across the country.
Establishing voting locations that provide reasonable access to eligible voters is a major responsibility of electoral management bodies. Building on the experience of past elections in Libya and taking into account comparative experiences from other countries in the region and further afield, participants will discuss ways to effectively maintain and update polling centre lists and related data for future electoral events in Libya.
The event is organized with the support of the European Union.
