ANFREL Newsletter (October-December 2021)

The Asian Network for Free Elections (ANFREL) is commemorating 25 years of advancing electoral democracy in Asia in 2022.

In the last quarter of 2021, ANFREL organized the Asian Electoral Stakeholder Forum 5 where participants adopted the “AESF 5 Memorandum: The Way Forward for Elections Beyond the COVID-19 Pandemic.”

ANFREL also observed the Thai Tambon/sub-district administration organization elections. The preliminary findings show that the voting and counting processes went smoothly on Election Day. ANFREL, however, expressed concern about the high rates of invalid ballots and issues of vote-buying. ANFREL will publish its final mission report in January 2022.

Here are other key activities that ANFREL conducted from July-September 2021:
