Brussels, 6 December 2023: The European Commission DG JUST invited Election-Watch.EU to the 20th European Cooperation Network on Elections (ECNE) meeting and to present its preliminary findings of the Pre-Election Assessment Mission (PEAM) and planning for the June 2024 European Parliament elections.

Election-Watch.EU provided a brief overview of the take away from its PEAM meetings and emphasised the value added by acknowledged citizen-led election observation organisations, which adhere to the Declaration of Global Principles for Nonpartisan Election Observation and Monitoring by Citizen Organizations and the Code of Conduct for Non-partisan Citizen Election observers and Monitors. Election-Watch.EU also emphasised that it will request election observer accreditations in all 27 EU member states for the June 2024 European Parliament elections. 

As part of broad efforts to protect the 2024 elections to the European Parliament, the Commission supports Member States’ Election Management Bodies by organising ECNE meetings to exchange information and share good practices. Election-Watch.EU has been invited for the fourth time to an ECNE meeting to present its findings and methodology.
