Observation and Monitoring
Observing and monitoring an election is important in order to improve its quality, build public confidence and protect the rights of the people who participate in it by way of voting.
The Kenya Elections Information Centre (KEIC) seeks to enhance the credibility and transparency of the Kenyan elections by critically observing and monitoring the manner in which they will be conducted. The process also helps to diffuse tensions that arise as a result of the high levels of suspicion and malpractices that most elections are prone to.
KEIC observatory for pre-election, election and post-election is designed to react to real time challenges of the electoral process. The main objective is to collect real time relevant information and alert authorities to respond as quickly as needed, therefore reducing the risk of misinformation and tensions.
We believe that democratic processes should inspire trust from voters and all relevant key stakeholders so that the government that emerges as the winner has full legitimacy from the people.
