ARABIC LEXICON OF ELECTORAL TERMINOLOGY
Nov 24, 2014
With close to 500 entries, the tri-lingual (Arabic, English and French) the lexicon provides clear and accurate explanations of key concepts and terms in the field of elections. The Lexicon documents the most widely accepted electoral terms in Arabic accounting for regional language variations in eight participating countries, namely, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Palestine, Tunisia and Yemen. Electoral practices and experience vary widely across the Arabic-speaking world and different terms are used in different countries to refer to the same roles or activities in the electoral process. This Lexicon is a first effort to bridge that gap.
