USAID Holds Workshop on Campaign Finance Monitoring for Libyan CSOs
IFES Libya

The International Foundation for the Electoral System (IFES) recently concluded a 4-day workshop for Libyan Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) with the aim of familiarizing them on Electoral Campaign Finance Monitoring (CFM). The workshop focused on International Best Practices regulating CFM while helping the CSOs develop a methodological framework which would enable them to observe the electoral cycle in Libya. Ad hoc tools to effectively monitor political contributions and spending were also discussed.

These exercises were intended to build CSO capacities and to play an active role in electoral processes, an important step toward the building and consolidation of democratic institutions and human rights.

Several prominent Libyan CSOs from the 13 electoral constituencies as well as representatives of the Libyan High National Elections Commission (HNEC) attended the workshop.
