Strengthening Electoral and Legislative Processes (SELP)

Facilitation Through NADRA Mobile Registration Van Women NIC & Voters Registration Campaign.

Strengthening Electoral and Legislative Processes (SELP)

ACT has always endeavored towards improving the democratic system in the country by ensuring strengthening of the electoral and legislative process, and along with it creating awareness on these processes amongst the general public. ACT’s engagement with youth under various project and programmes has always ensured this aspect of strengthening democratic processes.

ACT has engaged 1.6 million women in 32 districts across Pakistan under Waseela-e-Taleem programme of BISP. This engagement provided ACT with a detailed awareness of the local, cultural context and contributed to the formation of 50,000 BISP Beneficiary Committees to uplift women’s voice for redressal of their problems as well as participation in committees to discuss social, economic and other related issues.

  • On the basis of this experience, SELP was envisaged under Citizens Voice Project (CVP) focusing following activities:
  • Volunteer citizens are organized to advocate for and actively facilitate women to acquire CNICs, register as voters, and vote on Election Day.
  • Media/journalists write/broadcast about, advocate for, and are actively engaged in support for women to acquire CNICs, register as voters, and vote on Election Day.
  • Influential local stakeholders (religious leaders, elders, leaders of local CSOs, and other local community leaders or “influential”) advocate for and are actively engaged in support of women to acquire CNICs, register as voters, and vote on Election Day.
  • Coordination mechanisms with relevant state institutions (such as local ECP and NADRA offices and local administration) are activated in support of women to acquire CNICs and register as voters.
  • Political party leaders (and candidates) advocate for and are actively engaged in support for women to acquire CNICs, register as voters, and vote on Election Day.

The project was able to successfully deliver the envisaged objectives and engage men, women, youth and the general public in a participatory manner while contributing to strong information and awareness on the electoral processes, understanding on norms, rules and legislations as well as the right of women to participate in electoral activities. As a result of this project, the following results were sorted out:

  • 50 volunteers from target communities were organized who actively facilitated women to acquire CNICs, register as voters, and vote on Election Day.
  • Eight FM radio programs were broadcasted that advocated for women’s CNIC and voter registration, and provided knowledge to 25000 women to acquire CNICs, register as voters and vote on Election Day.
  • Community leaders have provided increased support for women to acquire CNICs, register as voters, and vote on Election Day.
  • 10 officials from NADRA and district registration office were trained in social mobilization and gender mainstreaming to equip them with skills that could enable them in supporting women to acquire CNICs and register as voters.
  • 10 political party leaders and workers were mobilized who have ensured their support for women to acquire CNICs, register as voters and vote on the Election Day.
