ANFREL Newsletter (January-March 2020)
The Asian Network for Free Elections (ANFREL) published the first edition for 2020 of its quarterly newsletter e-Bulletin.
In this issue, ANFREL highlights the discussion on elections in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic. ANFREL, in a statement, expressed concern and regarded the postponements of elections as reasonable measures, "as long as they take place within a well-defined legal framework, and last no longer than necessary."
ANFREL also dedicated a special section on the celebration of the International Women's Day and other election and democracy related news in Asia.
During the first quarter of 2020, ANFREL has published the following reports and resources:
• Reporting on Elections: A Toolkit for Journalists in Myanmar
• The 2020 Taiwanese General Election: A Success for Democracy Despite Emerging Challenges
• The 2019 Sri Lankan Presidential Election: A Deepening Political Divide
• ANFREL Research Report on PWD Participation in Thai Election
