 Civil Society Election Coalition (CSEC) 2011
For Free and Fair Elections
Issued Wednesday 21 September 2011 at 15:00 hours Taj Pamodzi Hotel, Lusaka
The Civil Society Election Coalition (CSEC) 2011 deployed approximately 9,000 trained andaccredited non-partisan monitors to polling streams for the 2011 Tripartite Elections. CSECwishes to commend Zambians for going out and voting in large numbers. We also wish toacknowledge the efforts of the polling officials who were in charge of the more than 9,000polling streams to provide Zambian with an opportunity to vote.Based on reports from our monitors in every province, district and constituency of the country,CSEC notes that so far the election process, while not perfect, has been generally smooth andpeaceful. The election, however, is not over. Any election day has five main processes: 1) thesetting up of polling streams; 2) voting; 3) closing of polling streams; 4) counting; and 5) thecollation and announcement of results. Vigilance must continue to help ensure the credibility of the collation and announcement of results.
The Civil Society Election Coalition (CSEC) 2011 is a joint initiative of eight independent andnon-partisan Zambian organisations which have come together to monitor the 2011 TripartiteElections together. CSEC’s mission is to help ensure that all Zambians are able to exercise their right to vote and to provide the people of Zambia, political contestants and the ElectoralCommission of Zambia (ECZ) with independent non-partisan information on the electoralprocess. This is done to help enhance the credibility of the process and to promote peace in thecountry.CSEC’s member organisations are:
Anti-Voter Apathy Project (AVAP)
Caritas Zambia (Caritas)
Foundation for Democratic Process (FODEP)
Operation Young Vote (OYV)
Southern African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (SACCORD)
