Apply to be an Observer for the 2022 Snap Parliamentary Election
The Electoral Commission is responsible for the organisation and conduct of the different electoral processes. The work of administering the electoral process itself is the responsibility of its operational arm, the Vanuatu Electoral Office (VEO) headed by the Principal Electoral Officer (PEO).
In order to ensure the transparency of the process the VEO is inviting and accrediting national observer groups, and international groups or organisations that wish to deploy electoral observers for the nomination period, the political campaign, and for polling, counting, and tallying. The VEO will provide observers with relevant information regarding the electoral process through briefings and information packs, as well as providing the compulsory electoral observer Code of Conduct, stating the rights and responsibilities of the observer groups.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will assist the entry of parliamentarians, partners, organisations etc., who must be funded and supported by their own means, in any election observation mission and in their efforts to contact electoral authorities at a central level.
The Electoral Commission will provide accreditation to the organizations and their observers upon receipt of an observation accreditation application, as well as provide a briefing package including a list of polling locations, and electoral maps. The organisations undertaking observation will be responsible for their own logistics and security.
Vanuatu places a high value on election observation conducted by partners from the Pacific region and beyond and welcomes election observers and their recommendations as credible and important inputs to further boost and improve the democratic electoral processes in Vanuatu.
