Blogger Election Monitors

Bahrain's 2010 parliamentary elections will be monitored by bloggers:
"Bloggers in Bahrain will create a network to monitor the parliamentary and municipal elections next year, a human rights watchdog said.

"'The group of bloggers will produce news and statements about the elections and will post pictures and video clips from the day when candidates submit their papers to the announcement of the final results,' said Menashi Cohen, deputy secretary general of Bahrain Human Rights Society.

"'The bloggers will be from the society. It will be our contribution to higher levels of transparency and to the success of the elections,' he said. The blogs will be a reflection of the reality on the ground without any political bias, Cohen said."
