The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) is gearing up for the upcoming general elections by establishing a four-level monitoring control room system.
In a one-day online training workshop for Regional Monitoring Coordinators (RMCs), comprehensive training was provided on the monitoring framework and the setup of monitoring rooms at various levels.
All 32 Regional Election Commissioners have been appointed as RMCs for the General Elections 2024, following a two-day training session conducted at the ECP Secretariat in Islamabad two months ago. The RMCs will play a crucial role in ensuring effective and comprehensive monitoring at the divisional level, guiding and supervising monitoring teams in their respective districts.
The one-day workshop focused on the monitoring structure of the electoral watchdog, emphasizing the pivotal role of the upcoming provincial, divisional, and district-level monitoring control rooms. These control rooms will function under the supervision of the Central Monitoring Control Center in Islamabad.
Furthermore, RMCs will extend their training to District Monitoring Officers and Monitoring Teams within their divisions.
As part of the election monitoring strategy, four-level monitoring control rooms will be established, with legal actions being taken on the spot for any violations of the code of conduct during the elections. The entire monitoring system aims to ensure a fair and transparent electoral process.
