Conflict of Interest

Conflict of Interest in Election Law

Personal, direct or indirect interest of a member or staff of an Election Management Body (EMB), whether financial or otherwise, that is related to any matter that comes up for decision before that EMB. In such a case, the member or staff of the EMB concerned should disclose the conflict of interest and be prevented from participating in any discussion or decision on that matter.

Literature Review on (Ethics) Conflict of Interest

In the Encyclopedia of Public Administration and Public Policy, [1] Russell L. Williams offers the following summary about the topic of (Ethics) Conflict of Interest: The phrase “conflict of interest” may appear so self-explanatory that it does not require further examination. However, thoughtful scrutiny reveals that many of the pitfalls and failures associated with public service at any level grow out of legal or ethical conflicts of interest. Some consider conflicts of interest to occur only when specific conflict of interest rules or laws are broken. Many of those laws are aimed at specific issues, such as financial disclosure, nepotism, improper use of public resources, or influence peddling. However, in the larger sense, if an individual (or group) functioning under governmental auspices, responsible for making decisions or taking actions affecting the public, places self-interest ahead of public interest in exercising authority, then a conflict of interest exists.
