Scytl has sponsored the 5th Global Electoral Organization (GEO) conference that was held in Gaborone (Botswana) from March 7 to March 9. Under the heading “Credible Elections for Democracy”, 300 election experts from around the world have examined different aspects of the election process such as electoral reform, elections and conflict, and engaging electoral stakeholders. After three days of deliberations the conference drew up a statement – the “Gaborone Declaration” – that will serve as a reference point for the future. The GEO was established following the wave of democratization that swept the world after the end of the Cold War and held its very first conference in April 1999. It is now one of the largest democracy forums in the world.
