Election Observers "Train the Trainers"-Workshop

"Train the Trainers"

The workshop aims at training organisation champions as elections observers who will then capacitate their members with election observation skills and replay them accordingly.


This civil society Election Observation Workshop took place at the Diakonia Centre in Durban on July 25, 2016. The workshop was a partnership between DDP, KAS and KZNCSOC. Ten organisations under KZNCSOC were invited to the workshop in which two members from each organisation attended. The purpose of the workshop was to train organisation members to be accredited election observers, who will then equip members of their organisations with election observation skills and deploy accordingly comes election time on August 3, 2016.

Civil Society in South Africa and KZN in particular, has since the dawn of the democratic era, been playing a pivotal role in Nation Building and in entrenching a Culture of Democracy. The 2016 election period is another critical period in this journey. Civil Society is called again to collectively contribute towards ensuring that the forthcoming 2016 local government elections are free, fair and credible.

It is against this backdrop that the KZN Civil Society Coalition in partnership with the DDP invites your organisation to send 2 people to attend this workshop.
