ETWA Preliminary Report (2018 Parliamentary Elections Observation Mission)

February 7, 2019

Introduction
Conduct of 2018 Parliamentary Election was not only a test for the Afghan Government and electoral management bodies, but also an experience for the people to practice democracy and determine their political destiny through electing representatives.
According to the IEC, around 4 million citizens participated in 2018 elections of which 33 percent was women. Widespread and meaningful participation of people on Election Day to defend democratic values and the achievements of recent decade, security forces tireless efforts to ensure safe environment for voting and active engagement of agents, observers and media to support a transparent, free and fair election are commendable.
However, ETWA observation and reports from other observer groups and media show that women participation was perceived not to be as considerable, in particular in remote and insecure areas. ETWA findings in relation to women participation from 12 provinces covered are summarized in chart (1).

Based on the information provided by the IEC, around 8 million citizens who registered were supposed to partake in elections but IEC reports of Election Day demonstrate only 4 million voters casted their vote creating doubts about accuracy of the above mentioned statistics.
In total, 4900 polling centers were planned by the IEC for voting including around 19 thousand polling stations of which 4567 PCs, according to the IEC, actually opened on Election Day. Further, IEC issued over 400 thousand accreditation letters for national and international observer groups including candidate agents apparently demonstrating its will for holding transparent and fair elections in the country. Download The Report (PDF) File
