International & National Observer

The Joint Election Management Body (JEMB) recognizes that election observation can play a significant role in ensuring that the entire electoral process is conducted in accordance with the law and international standards and enhances both domestic and international confidence in the elections. The status of observers has been recognized in the Electoral Law and JEMB Regulation on Electoral Observers.

In order to facilitate election observation the Joint Election Management Body Secretariat (JEMBS) established the Observer Facilitation Section (OFS), responsible for providing the observer organizations with information on the electoral process, as well as the work of the JEMB and its secretariat.

Each accredited Observer Entity will receive a copy of the Entity Liaison Briefing Pack as well as a copy of the Guidelines for Observers for each registered Observer.

To be able to observe different stages of the electoral operation, domestic and international organizations should apply for accreditation. Please note that generally the JEMB will only accredit organizations as observers, not individuals. The Secretariat will then register individual observer delegation members as persons representing the accredited organizations.

The OFS can be reached by e-mail: observer@unops.org.af and by phone: +93(0)70 251 307 for international observers and +93(0)79 206 083 for domestic observers.
