Sri Lanka

With rising economic instability, political infighting and questionable recent reforms to the constitution and electoral laws, leading to increased uncertainty in the political environment, Sri Lanka’s upcoming elections, including the Provincial Council elections, provide a critical opportunity to safeguard transparent and inclusive electoral processes in a fragile political context. IFES works to increase the role of civil society, particularly women, youth and other underrepresented groups and supports the Election Commission of Sri Lanka to strengthen its organizational capacity to expand its voter outreach and inclusivity of Sri Lanka’s electoral process. Building on more than two decades of experience working in Sri Lanka, IFES’ strong partnerships with local civil society organizations and government institutions advance gender and inclusion; accessible voter and civic education; credible elections; and democracy.
