Citizen Observer Initiative is a coalition of Armenian NGOs which was established in 2013 by Transparency International Anticorruption Center (TIAC), Europe in Law Association (ELA), Journalists’ Club “Asparez” (JCA), and the Helsinki Citizens' Assembly Vanadzor Office (HCAV) to jointly oversee Yerevan City Council elections. Given the effective cooperation and the significance of public oversight of the electoral processes, the initiative continued its activities.

Its core composition now comprised of TIAC, ELA, and JCA, Citizen Observer Initiative continued its operation, and it also has cooperated with other organizations in different stages of its activity.
