CEPPS works with Libya’s High National Election Commission (HNEC), Central Committee for Municipal Council Elections (CCMCE), and the Ministry of Education (MoE), along with many candidates and political parties to promote a transparent and competitive political environment; and to increase government transparency, accountability, and responsiveness to citizens. Together with the Libyan media, CEPPS also strives to strengthen the credibility, transparency, and inclusiveness of the electoral process.
Along with Libyan election management bodies, government, stakeholders, and civil society, CEPPS provides support strengthening the integrity, transparency, and inclusiveness of electoral and political processes. This has included encouraging the development of Libya’s legal framework for elections, partnering with the HNEC and CCMCE to develop their electoral administration and voter outreach capacity, while improving critical aspects of the electoral process related to campaign finance, election dispute, and countering misinformation. Domestic election observation groups have also benefited from CEPPS’s support for citizen-led election observation missions, based on best practices and preparation for future national and local elections. Beyond electoral support, CEPPS provides Libyan CSOs help improving the effectiveness of civic and voter education and empowering women, persons with disabilities, marginalized populations, and first-time voters to take part in the transition process. Delivering assistance to activists working on issues such as accessibility for people with disabilities, combating underage marriage, and increasing women’s representation in Libya’s institutions, as well as encouraging youth-led organizations to host civic youth debates and implementing grassroots advocacy and direct-action initiatives across Libya are all within CEPPS programming.
