10th Annual National Conference on Electoral and Political Reforms,
15- 16 February, 2014, at Ranchi
Every year Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) and National Election Watch (NEW) hold National Conference in different states with primary focus on Electoral and Political reforms. The Conference is held with the aim of bringing together and synergizing efforts towards strengthening democracy in the country.
Topics of discussion during the conference range from ‘Need for electoral reforms’, ‘Reducing Impact of money in elections’ to ‘Role of media in elections’. These discussions have been enriched by the participation of eminent people including the Chief Election Commissioner, former Chief Justices, representatives of political parties, civil society and the media.
This year, ADR and NEW take great pride in inviting one and all to the 10th Annual Conference, being held in Ranchi, ‘the city of waterfalls’.
With the Lok Sabha Elections around the corner, the 10th Annual National Conference to be held in Ranchi on the 15th and 16th of February holds a special charm. ADR’s campaign, ‘Mera Vote Mera Desh’ will be the primary focus of the conference, which is being inaugurated by the Election Commissioner of India, Shri H S Brahma. With a strength of 1200 partner NGOs, the National Election Watch has launched the ‘Mera Vote Mera Desh’ Campaign to sensitize the voters across the nation not to sell their votes and not to cast their votes for tainted candidates. The emphasis of the ‘Mera Vote Mera Desh’ campaign is towards enhancing voter awareness and their empowerment, thereby reducing the impact of crime and money in politics.
Apart from a discussion on the campaign, the 10th Annual National conference will also focus and debate on ‘Political Party Reforms’, Role of Media in Elections’ and ‘Pending Reforms with the Law Commission’. These deliberations would have eminent panellists and Chairpersons. An update on the plans and strategies from the various ‘State Election Watch’ for the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections will also be held.
