Australia Indonesia Partnership for Electoral Support 2010: Management response to independent evaluation
Summary of publication
This document outlines the department's management response to the Independent Evaluation of the Australia-Indonesia Partnership for Electoral Support 2010.
The report's recommendations were found to be highly relevant to the new elections program. However, the recommendations that the new program take a more pro-active stance in identifying and addressing key issues could be misconstrued as interfering in Indonesian affairs. In response management clarified that all Australian elections support has been and will be non-partisan and that all activities have been and will continue to be assessed for funding in consultation with the Indonesian Government. Support to the elections legislation amendment process seeks to strengthen informed debate by domestic actors.
