Monitoring election campaigns


The monitoring of election campaigns is considered by NOSA to be an important process for the education of the electors and the increase of responsibility, accountability and accountancy of the elected. Under NOSA, MJAFT proposed to closely follow the electoral platforms and the implementation of election promises in the last general elections. The results of the monitoring are published and updated on www.unevotoj.com. Through the information provided, MJAFT aims to educate and build the awareness of Albanian citizens on the workings of Albania’s Assembly. Other incremental effects of the project are the improvement of the image of Albania’s Assembly in the eyes of the public and increase of civic participation in public policy and decision making.

In the first months of the implementation of the project important information was gathered concerning the election platforms of the main parties, the election promises of the candidates for deputies, their curriculum vitas, political party finances, etc. The project was very enlightening to the public and was especially valuable to the media which disseminated the information widely across the whole population groups.

Presently the web site has been transformed into a data base which collects information on the work of Albanian deputies in the Assembly of Albania. It functions as a data base providing information on the activity of members of the Albanian Parliament in three basic categories: biographic information, finances and parliamentary activity. At the end of every parliamentary session, unevotoj.com publishes a detailed report.

Over this year, an extension to the website is being constructed to cover local elections and afterwards the work of the local government. The construction will be finalized soon. In the meantime 12 local reporters have been recruited and are now collecting information on the 12 municipalities of Durres, Tirana, Shkodra, Korca, Kukesi, Berati, Gjirokastra, Elbasani, Peshkopia, Fieri, Vlora and Lezha.
