The change pathway towards democratic governance underpinning UNSDCF is through strengthening people’s trust in the governance systems on one side and enhancing policymaking and people-centered service delivery capacity on the other.

To support inclusive, transparent, and accountable governance in Armenia, UN’s interventions continued targeting electoral and parliamentary processes as well as public administrations institution-strengthening. In 2021, UN was called in for electoral assistance by GoA and contributed to the conduct of snap parliamentary elections that were assessed by OSCE ODIHR as competitive and well-managed within a short time frame. UN support focused on modernization modalities and high-tech solutions, including e-Voting options, based on UN’s “Feasibility Study on Innovative Technologies for the Electoral Process in Armenia.” With UN’s support, the Central Electoral Commission (CEC) established the modern and user-friendly website, including the interactive map of polling stations.
