The Institute for Public Environment Development (IPED) Association will endeavor to strengthen the cooperation between representatives of civil society, the media, and relevant institutions at the state and local level to bring the electoral process in Bulgaria in line with international standards for free and fair elections. The organization will analyze the work of the Central Electoral Commission aiming to inform the public debate and will monitor political party financing in an environment of reduced state funding and unlimited allowable private donations. Finally, the project provides for an upgrade and the continued development of an online platform for independent information on the work of the National Assembly as well as analytical content on EU policies as well as their implementation in and impact on Bulgaria.
