Together for fair elections (trainings)
On the 25th, 26th and 27th of July in Vratza, our team conducted trainings with part of the youngest non-partisan observers of elections, registered in the network of the Institute for Public Environment Development. Made mainly by Roma volunteers the “League of young voters” aims to protect the integrity of the electoral process in some of the most vulnerable points to fraudulent practices in our country. The establishment of this network is a long-term goal for the IPED and for our partner organizations - we aim to encourage more and more young people to participate actively in the political process and safeguard the fairness of elections in Bulgaria.
On behalf of our team, we would like to thank all of the participants for their enthusiasm and willingness to work together with us. We in IPED believe that the good and positive examples, created by them are fundamental in leading the public debate towards the real problems and their resolutions – if part of the Roma vote in Bulgaria is being consistently bought, than the preventive measures against it should address the real offenders and political players, who benefit from it for years.
