2018-Gafsa Municipal elections : Hamma Hammami calls for massive participation in coming municipal elections

Popular Front spokesman Hamma Hammami urged voters to vote massively on May 6 and fulfill their electoral duties, saying that the change in the situation in municipal areas depends on their participation in the selection of new municipal councils.

At a meeting Tuesday organised by the PF candidate list in the municipality of Essanad (Gafsa governorate), Hammami said “that the ruling coalition is trying not to encourage voters to participate in the next elections to cover its failure”.

For his part, chairman of the list, Kamel El Behi, said that the electoral programme on its list includes nine points including dedication of good governance in the action of the city council, diversification of municipal resources, improving the condition of roads and sidewalks and creating a municipal fund to encourage small projects.

The environmental situation in Essanad, the creation of tourism, sports and cultural activities as well as the establishment of a partnership relationship with civil society are also among the priorities of municipal action.

Eight lists are running for the 18 seats of the municipality of Essanad whose number of voters is 10,501.

These lists include four independent lists, three partisan lists (Nidaa Tounes, Ennahdha movements and the Socialist Party) and a coalition list of the PF.
