6 November, 2010
.
On November 8 to 11, 2010 a delegation from Mongolia will visit the Philippines for an Electoral Seminar and Study Tour to be conducted by NAMFREL with the support of the Open Society Forum. The aim of the study tour is to provide opportunities for Mongolia’s key stakeholders to learn from the Philippines experience in ensuring the integrity of democratic elections and electoral process.

Participants of the Mongolian delegation would comprise representatives from a Parliamentary task force assigned to develop a new draft law on Parliamentary election, the Parliament Secretariat, the General Election Commission, election monitoring organizations, and journalists.

NAMFREL’s involvement in the international electoral scene include invitations by the United Nations and the UNDP to monitor elections in Cambodia and most recently in Madagascar, Solomon Islands, and Afghanistan as well as receiving several nominations to the Nobel Peace Prize from notable organizations such as the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and the International Human Rights Law Group, based in Washington D.C.

Internationally, NAMFREL volunteers have worked as trainers, observer team members, election administrators and resource persons in 32 countries so far, namely: Afghanistan, Argentina, Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Chile, China, Cote D’Ivoire, Denmark, Haiti, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Mexico, Mongolia, Mozambique, Nepal, Pakistan, Peru, Portugal, Romania, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Timor Leste, U.S.A., Uzbekistan and Zambia. NAMFREL volunteers, staff, and officers have
been directly involved in the creation of similar election monitoring organizations in some of these counties.
