Formation

PAFFREL was established in 1987 by representatives of several national-level civil society organizations. It has been registered as a non-profit organization under the Companies Act No.17 of 1982 and re-registered under Companies Act. No. 7 of 2007. It was formed at a time when the need had arisen for the civil society to intervene to ensure the democratic nature of elections as the contests was being affected by violence and violation of election laws.

One of the main aims of setting up PAFFREL was to promote a people’s effort to prevent violence and malpractices before, during and after elections. Since, its formation, PAFFREL has monitored all the elections held in the country – local authority, Provincial Council, Parliamentary and Presidential – in collaboration with a large number of civil society organizations. It has, throughout the years, conducted advocacy and awareness programmes in areas such as voters’ rights, democracy, human rights and good governance, in different parts of the country. In all its activities PAFFREL has maintained absolute neutrality.
