Ben Gharbia in El Kef: “All political parties and components of civil society are called upon to make municipal election successful”

Minister of Relation with Constitutional Authorities, Civil Society and Human Rights, Mehdi Ben Gharbia, said that “all political parties and components of civil society are called upon to make the municipal elections successful and to support the electoral process “.

The minister was speaking on Thursday at el Kef awareness day on the “Role of the administration and civil society in supporting the electoral process.”

“These elections are more important than the legislative or the presidential since they concern 350 municipal constituencies,” he emphasised.

In this context, the Minister called on all stakeholders including components of civil society to fulfill their role in the control of the election campaign and the supervision of citizens.

Ben Gharbia, moreover, took cognizance of the concerns of the local people concerning the conduct of the elections. The participants in the meeting drew attention to the bias of the administration, the lack of awareness among the rural population of the importance of municipal elections and the lack of recourse to indelible election ink. For them the cancellation of the use of indelible ink can contribute to the falsification of the electoral process.
