Every election involves different categories of stakeholders. These range from Election Officials, who directly handle the conduct and supervision of the elections, to the Contestants, accredited Polling or Party Agents, Security Agents, accredited Journalists, Foreign and Domestic Observers, as well as the Voters.

1.0 Professional Ethics of Election Officials Election Officials have a major role to play in the electoral process. The manner in which they discharge their duties affects the degree of confidence voters will have in the electoral process. Election Officials should be courteous, polite and helpful at all times. Voters should be treated equally and with respect. Unethical and corrupt practices by election officials can incur severe punishments under the law. Election officials should be guided by the following principles:

a) Integrity
b) Impartiality
c) Transparency
d) Professionalism
e) Gender sensitivity
f) Due consideration and support for the elderly, pregnant women and the physically challenged.

1.1 Election Officials and Their Duties Election Officials include personnel of the Commission (both Permanent and Temporary) who directly handle the conduct or supervision of the elections as well as representatives of other stakeholders, such as Security Agencies, Political Parties and Observer Groups, among others.
