European Parliamentary Elections Evaluation Seminar 3rd July 2009, Budapest The IT Cooperation of EU Member Countries on the European Parliamentary Elections ● Successful EP elections were carried out also in 2004 and 2009 (from the view of the newly joined member states) ● Further potentials to develop in the administration of electoral processes between EMBs of the member states to exceed the traditional means of communication ● According to our experiences, there are general and specific communication channels that should be established prior to the following (2014) EP elections to serve the following purposes: è Ensuring that the EMBs of all member states are provided with well-organized communication facilities è Ensuring that the EMBs of all member states, during the preparation of the Registers of Voters will fulfill their prescribed duties in an organized manner, with an IT support extending to all member states, concerning the Council Regulation no. 93/109/EC. è For the Regulation mentioned above, during the nomination period of the next EP elections the appropriate electoral organs shall cooperate by IT support in the cases of candidates running outside their member countries. ● The legal, organizational and information aspects of these tasks also shall be solved. According to necessity, common and national regulation plans may be prepared. ● Suggested basic principle: international communication should be carried out on a basis of community regulation or agreement, while the adjustment to the national electoral system should be solved by the national organs. ● How the IT & communication support should be carried out? è The previously mentioned communication process could be performed through a mailing and dispatcher centre. è The e-mail service shall function with a regular structure, including the list of structure organs, their representatives, contact details and forum: and as such shall provide the data of public interest. è The dispatcher centre carrying out the data-transfer would connect the appropriate systems by message broker function on the basis of the EML* technical recommendation. è Those, who are in a lack of lack of connection to the system shall be provided with a traceable mailbox by the dispatcher centre, or browser data entry would be received and transferred to the recipient. ● The above-mentioned dispatcher centre could also manage the handling of national character sets and other conversions. ● In the case of mutual understanding within all EU member states concerning this recommendation, with the professional contribution of ACEEEO, Hungary would be pleased to be ACEEEO designated with the technical realization and operation of this centre. Another issue that would need stronger cooperation between the member states, is the question of information exchange during the preparation and realization of the EP elections. This recommendation would raise the currently used method to a higher level of organization. Thank you for your kind attention, and please collect your ideas and recommendations concerning these suggestions, as we count on your active participation in the last session of the Seminar (Workshop), to discuss the future of the EP elections.
