KAS Election Bridge - Campaigning Training Course

An Online Training Course on Election Campaigning

Winning election is not a game of luck for political parties and candidates. It is a result of long-term preparations, robust organization, emphatic communication, effective strategy, political timing, hard-work and a little bit of luck. All these are only possible with people. Without passionate, competent, and professional individuals, election campaigning will be a risky and a potentially losing exercise.
