What is CCET?

There was no certification mechanism of the electoral officials either, nor to assess their professional abilities. Through its activity, the Centre for Continuous Electoral Training (CCET) shall fill in these gaps contributing in such a way to the increase of the number of persons who have professional experience in the field of elections and to a more qualitative organization of the election process.
