"Akanates" (Eyewitness) election observation mission will engage around 160 observers to participate in the public oversight of Yerevan city council elections on September 23, 2018. The observation mission will cover 80 precincts in all administrative districts of Yerevan.

All observers underwent trainings and are bound by Code of conduct for election observers to provide objective and unbiased information on the electoral process.

A team of lawyers will work on the election day to give legal advice to observers and get alerts on electoral violations. Based on recorded incidents, complaints will be filed with electoral commissions and administrative court, and electoral crime reporting with the law enforcement bodies.

The initiative will disseminate press releases and post information if needed on the election day on Facebook pages of "Akanates" election observation mission and its members, as well as on the websites of www.transparency.am and www.asparez.am.

The observation mission is carried out with the support of the National Endowment for Democracy.

“Akanates” election observation mission was founded by Transparency International Anticorruption Center NGO, Journalists’ Club “Asparez” NGO and “Restart” Civic Initiative. During Yerevan city council elections Law Development and Protection Foundation will act as the partner of “Akanates” observation mission.
