A total of 7,500 election monitors will be dispatched to all 25 districts to observe the upcoming presidential election, the Campaign for Free and Fair Elections (CaFFE) said.
CaFFE said in a statement that a large number of observers were appointed corresponding to the record number of candidates running for President this year.
CaFFE Acting Executive Director Ahamed Manas said that, in every election to date, incidents of violating election laws were reported.
More incidents of abusing state resources can be expected this time, he noted, stressing that his organisation will pay special attention to cases such as voter bribing.
