CMEV goes to Citizens

CMEV goes to Citizens

Centre for Monitoring Election Violence (CMEV) conducted a series of citizen awareness discussions in Galle and Matara Districts from July 26 – 28, 2023. The objective of the program was to increase the understanding of women, youth, Persons with Disabilities and other members of other marginalized groups of their citizenry rights and duties in a democratic society. During 3 days, 7 discussions were conducted in highly remote locations in two districts with the participation of 480 individuals. It was highlighted that exercising the powers of sovereignty is an unrelinquishable right and sensible use of their voting rights in elections would be the fundamental solution for all present catastrophes.

The discussions were facilitated by Mr. Dharmasiri Nanayakkara, former Local Government Commissioner, Colombo District, Ms. Sriyanie Wijesundara, Senior Researcher CPA, Mr. D.M.Dissanayake AAL , Chief of Operation – CMEV and Mr. A.M.N Victor , National Coordinator – CMEV.
