22nd Feb 2008

Now that the Pakistan elections are over, you may like to know that my colleague Robert Evans was one of the team of election monitors throughout the difficult process. Election monitoring is an absolutely vital thing to do, and without it many elections, particularly in the developing world, would be neither free nor fair. Providing MEPs to go do this work, sometimes in dangerous situations, is one of the least known but important jobs done by the European Parliament.Having been an election monitor in Azerbaijan, I know how tough it can be. I doubt if Robert found the Pakistani elections any easier. In addition, Robert has a long commitment to the Sub-Continent and is Chair of the European Parliament delegation to South Asia.
