ECJ engages church
The Electoral Commission of Jamaica (ECJ) and the Jamaica Umbrella Group of Churches (JUGC) met recently to discuss ways in which members of the clergy and the Christian community can play a greater role in the democratic process.
The meeting took place at the ECJ's Red Hills Road office. The group from the JUGC cited, among other things, the availability and eagerness of its members to actively serve in the delivery of electoral services.
The meeting included an exchange of ideas on matters related to a fixed election date and dual elections, among other topics.
The ECJ was pleased to facilitate the dialogue as it remains committed to fostering cooperation with civil society groups in an effort to strengthen and deepen democracy.
