Post-election workshops in Yanacachi

Tuesday August 31st, 2021

In August, we organised two exciting workshops in our home county of Yanacachi at the request of civil society and the newly elected county government, whose election we had supported with impartial citizen education earlier this year. The aim of both workshops was to promote democratic scrutiny of elected representatives and to increase the transparency of political decision-making at community level.

One workshop offered the newly elected politicians the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the most important laws and administrative guidelines at the district level. The other workshop offered the citizens of Yanacachi the opportunity to actively participate in shaping the municipal budget. In this workshop, the responsible politicians presented their budget plans for the coming year and answered the participants’ questions. Both workshops enjoyed great demand and a lively discussion.
