The Electoral Integrity’s Global Electoral Integrity Report 2019-21 was been published!
The report finds that:
- Electoral integrity remains the highest in Nordic countries: Finland, Sweden, and Denmark.
- Regional disparity remains in electoral integrity, with some of the lowest scores found in Africa and Asia.
- Although electoral integrity continued to be generally higher in countries with much higher levels of economic development, quality elections were still delivered in lower-income countries such as Cape Verde, which had the highest ranked elections in Africa.
- Electoral finance remains the weakest area of the electoral cycle. The publishing of transparent financial accounts was the lowest sub-component. This demonstrates a need across the board for policymakers, candidates, and electoral authorities to improve reporting mechanisms to allow for maximum transparency in the use of money in elections.
