Since 2007, Al Hayat-RASED has been able to greatly affect the electoral reform processes in Jordan by calling for legal development, adopting new practices, enhancing civic participation and developing the work of the Independent Electoral Commission. The Center has successfully monitored the Jordanian General Elections in 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2020 and the municipal elections in 2013 and 2022. In addition, a number of different local elections were monitored such as elections for professional syndicates.
Al Hayat-RASED works in many countries, including Libya, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, Sudan and Algeria, to provide local civil society organizations with the necessary skills and knowledge to monitor all stages of elections, from the registration of voters and candidates to the publication of data related to the election process and potential anomalies.
In the wake of the 2024 General Elections, which will be the first elections since the adoption of the new laws on elections and political parties, RASED will work to:
- Develop the program’s work methodology
- Strengthen its alliances and maintain its independence: Al Hayat - RASED will make specific efforts to ensure that the coalition does not represent any governmental or party entity to continue to operate in an independent and impartial manner.
