In Nicaragua the Consejo Supremo Electoral (CSE), holds the electoral power and in its functions of an electoral court, it manages the whole electoral process. Registration is done manually. Only when a book is full it is sent to the department level electoral councils or CEDs, which in turn reviews the information and sends the books to the central registry. Under-registration is an evil affecting the civil registration system and it's partly a product of that system's failings. The Commission has identified a project to bring together the key actors in a common initiative to address the failings of the civil registration and "cedulación" systems. The global objective of the assignment has been to assist the EC Delegation to Nicaragua in formulating a project of support to the modernisation of civil registration and citizens basic ID systems in Nicaragua.
