CFI

THE CIVIC FORUM INTITIATIVE (CFI)

Overview

The CFI is a broad coalition of civil society actors with membership drawn from advocacy NGOs, policy think tanks, faith-based organizations, community based organizations, youth groups, labour organizations, gender groups, and individual citizens. The CFI was formed in 2008 in response to an appeal by the Electoral Commission for citizens to assist the Commission to clean up the national voters’ register, after the limited registration exercise of July 31 through to August 12, 2008, yielded a bloated register.
