The Role of the Media in Elections IEC
Recognizing the challenges of a new electoral system, the Emir established the Permanent Elections Committee of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs in 2003 to raise public awareness of voting rights and responsibilities and also to empower citizens, particularly women, to participate in electoral processes. PEC activities have included public presentations to improve voter understanding of electoral processes and the role of the CMC. Presentations focused on topics such as the legal processes of elections; the role, responsibility and function of the Shura and municipal councils; the role of elections in a democracy; and the role of media in elections. The PEC has also overseen successful municipal council elections.
