Promoting Electoral Awareness among Lebanese Citizens Especially Youth

Phase IV

Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, Lebanon Office and Advanced Democracy for Sustainable Peace conducted 12 training sessions for youth across Lebanon.

The project series “Promoting Electoral Awareness”, helped in raising awareness about the elections, electoral laws, political systems as well as the importance of voting and how voting is related to democracy.

Through the sessions, Mr. Assem Chaya covered different topics that will help the participants understand the electoral law and push them to vote wisely. Especially that the Lebanese parliamentary election is set to take place in May this year. This election comes after several crises that faced the Lebanese people and there is a big need to vote.
