UNDP Lebanese Elections Assistance Project (LEAP) started its activity in October 2012 with the main objective to strengthen the institutional capacity of the national institutions and stakeholders in terms of electoral management and administration, in accordance with the international standards.
To achieve these objectives, LEAP works closely with the Ministry of Interior and Municipalities, which has responsibilities for electoral management, administration and overall electoral operations.
The project also supports other electoral stakeholders, such as the Constitutional Council, State Council, Supervisory Commission for Elections and judicial bodies with responsibilities for electoral disputes, electoral campaign monitoring.
In addition, the project works in close cooperation with civil society organizations active in the area of elections.
Within this context, UNDP LEAP is providing electoral technical assistance and advisory support through a multi-component approach focused on the following areas:
Chief technical advisor
