Timor-Leste NGOs are currently focusing on women's participation - especially as potential candidates - and the role of youth. The National NGO Forum has told us it may support international participation in the electoral process and has indicated it is looking for guidance on how to engage in the larger process, not just election day observation.
If you are interested, we very much want to hear your response to the following questions:
- Are you interested in volunteering your time for a minimum of three weeks, but ideally longer, for this purpose?
- Do you have experience and knowledge about Timor-Leste from your solidarity work, and perhaps past election observing in Timor-Leste, that would help you to offer the longer-view perspective that effective election monitoring requires?
If you are interested in being involved, should a delegation be organized, please let us know by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please share this email with others who might be interested in being involved. The more information we get now from those interested, the sooner we can plan and make a decision.
