KWN Educates Voters about Women Candidates, the New Electoral System

In November, KWN cooperated with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and UNIFEM to educate voters about the new election system in Kosova and women candidates running for office. KWN member organizations arranged for meetings attended by more than a thousand citizens representing all ethnic groups throughout Kosova. During meetings, KWN members provided tips for using the new open list electoral system, as well as distributed a publication with information about women candidates, prepared by the Centre for Training and Gender Studies. KWN representatives also appeared on local media talks shows to explain the electoral system.
