Bogotá, Colombia. On December 5, 2021, for the first time elections were held for Municipal and Local Youth Councils, an event that was observed by a mission of the Inter-American Union of Electoral Bodies (UNIORE). This followed the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding by the Head of the Mission, Jaime Bestard; the President of the National Electoral Council (CNE), Doris Méndez, and the head of the National Registry of Civil Status (RNEC), Alexander Vega.
On December 5, the members of the mission divided into groups to visit different polling places in order to observe the process. After the close, they made an evaluation and their comments and recommendations are part of a report that will then be delivered to the electoral bodies.
