Detail of United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Technical Expert Recruitment:
Election Commission of India (ECI) has been managing a ‘free and fair’ electoral process that remains unparalleled in the world given the massive numbers, geographic spread and organisational logistics involved. This has also led to a demand for sharing of experiences and learning with other developing countries. Concerted efforts by ECI and other bodies have succeeded in increasing the voter participation, as witnessed in the last Parliamentary election and subsequent state legislative assembly elections. However, measures have to be taken up for further increasing the participation and involving all sections of the society for achieving further inclusive elections. UNDP in partnership with ECI is implementing a project “Supporting Democratic Electoral Management” for the cycle 2013-2017 with the broad outcome of “Promoting the exchange of knowledge and experiences in the field of election management and administration through ECI to other developing countries.” The Election Commission of India and its International Cooperation Division has constantly engaged itself and others in generating innovative ideas and practices to respond to the emerging challenges. This has been done through bilateral and multilateral cooperation in promoting participatory democracy and best practices in election administration, professional contact and exchange activities, study and observation missions and technical support and advice. There has been a visible movement of late in several parts of the world in the direction of election based democracy, and the ECI is increasingly being approached for sharing its skills and knowledge in election management.
