The democratization process needs the political structure to be reformed taking the realities ofthe society into account. To this end, we have to increase public awareness and engage CSOs more in this process.Elections, as an important part of the democratization process are used to bring elected officials into power. In order to hold transparent elections, the institutions responsible for administering elections should be regulated clearly with a law.
