Centre for Monitoring Election Violence (CMEV) was formed in 1997 by the Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA), the Free Media Movement (FMM) and the Coalition Against Political Violence as an independent and non- partisan organisation to monitor the incidents of election related violence. Currently, CMEV is made up of CPA and INFORM Human Rights Documentation Centre. CMEV monitors all national, provincial and local elections.
Through years of experience, and utilising the latest in communications technology, CMEV has established an effective island-wide mechanism to speedily capture election related information and updates in Sri Lanka, and to verify and report these in a professional, unbiased and timely manner, supplying news to a number of media organisations, both local and international. CMEV works to protect and strengthen the integrity of the electoral process and the democratic rights of the peoples of Sri Lanka.
