Project awarded in Afghanistan!


B&S Europe in consortium with Phalenes and Hart, was awarded the EU Election Expert Mission for the Parliamentary Elections in the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.

The country is entering an electoral cycle, with Parliamentary elections (election of the Lower House or Wolesi Jirga) due on 20th October 2018 and presidential and provincial elections due on 20 April 2019. The electoral system is determined by the Electoral Law of 25th September 2016. The Wolesi Jirga has 250 members; 239 are elected in the 34 provinces in proportion of their population, each province being a constituency; 10 seats are allocated to the Nomads, and one to the Kuchie and Hindu/Sikh. There must be at least two females elected for each province.

The purpose of our Expert Mission is to collect factual information concerning the electoral process, to produce strategic analysis and to report on the ongoing electoral processes. Our experts will be deployed for nearly 2 months in Afghanistan.
