PHASE I PROJECT IMPLEMENTATION:
In order to gain public confidence and
to ensure that the Georgian electorate receives all information
necessary to make an adequate exercise of their right to vote, the
CEC established a Public Relations Office and developed a proactive
media campaign. The Public Information Campaign included information
for voters on how to address potential problems with the voter list,
information about voting procedures, anti-fraud measures, etc.
Through the implementing partner IFES, financial and technical
support was provided to the CEC Public Relations Office to conduct
its public information campaign (i.e. develop and implement a Voter
Registration Campaign and a Voting Day Information Campaign). The
campaign included posters and flyers in support of a comprehensive
media campaign. A free of charge telephone service was used to
enhance the campaign.
The OSCE contracted Internews to
conduct the monitoring of one of the Public Service Announcements
(“09 service” PSA). Roughly half of the planned PSA were not aired
