"Transparency in this context covers a wide range of decision-making issues by the election management team. It embraces meetings with each political party contesting an election, release of information on a timely basis on major developments in the preparatory stages of an election, affording an opportunity to political parties to object to the appointment of individual staff members and election officers and the taking of appropriate remedial action where an objection is found to be justified."
