Mock elections were held with the involvement of Imereti public and private schools

Mock elections were held with the involvement of Imereti public and private schools within the project “Move on together-For a Stronger Child and Youth Participation in Eastern Europe”.

1123 school students aged from 6 to 18 participated in the project throughout the Imereti region.

The mock elections were held with the actual Georgian election model. The students were introduced to the detailed programs of the five election candidates, then they planned and organized the election process by themselves, elected the election commission, prepared the creative ballot boxes, and ran the election campaign.

The election process was conducted in a hybrid manner at the partner schools. The voter students made relevant choices based on the priorities of the election programs.

The aim of the program is to help young people understand the mechanisms of democracy and learn about their constitutional rights, in order to prioritize and make sensible decisions; also, to develop a voting culture among youth through mock elections and the results of the election process.

The project is implemented by the organization SIQA with the support of the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany, Berlin Senate Department for Education, Youth and Science, and Berlin Charity Association Parity. Education Development and Employment Center (EDEC) coordinates the project in the Imereti region.
