Electoral Reform-The Way Forward is the focus of a panel discussion planned for next week, hosted by the Electoral Commission in conjunction with the University of the West Indies Open Campus and the Dominica State College.
A release from the Electoral Commission states that the primary objective of the panel discussion is to advance the Electoral Commission’s mandate to inform and educate the general public on electoral matters
One of the primary objectives of the panel discussion is to advance the Electoral Commission’s mandate to inform and educate the general public on electoral matters and it has proposed to have the event covered by multiple media houses to allow for maximum reach of the information presented at the event. It is in this regard that your participation as a media partner is critical.
It is intended that the panelists will include the Chairman of the Electoral Commission, as well as two representatives of the Government side of the House of Assembly and two representatives of the opposition side. It is anticipated that the Minister for Foreign Affairs and the Attorney General will represent the Government side. Stakeholders from all sectors of the Dominica society will also be invited to send representatives to sit in the audience and to participate in the discussions.
These will include Parliamentarians, members of the Executive, church and civil society groups, social clubs and academic organisations.
