Municipal elections: 36,055 among military and security forces registered on voters’ lists

The number of registered voters among the military and security forces for the next municipal elections reached 36,055, said Wednesday Adel Brinsi, Independent High Authority for Elections (ISIE) member.

This figure represents 0.67% of the number of voters registered on the list of electors for the municipal poll scheduled for April 29, 2018, for the security and military forces and for May 6, 2018 for all Tunisians.

A joint decision between the ISIE and the Independent High Broadcasting Authority (HAICA) sets the rules and procedures for media coverage on the voting day for the security and military forces will be published, he said.

We are moving towards the non-authorisation of the media to poll voters among the security and military forces out of polling stations, he noted. The aim, he says, is to avoid drawing political conclusions. This category of voters must keep their neutrality before all political parties and respect the confidentiality and secrecy of the vote.

On preparations for fitting out polling stations, Brinsi pointed out that their lay-out should favour the efficiency of the security and military forces’ movement according to the housing density.

A meeting is expected to be held between the officials of the ministries of interior affairs and national defence to co-ordinate security arrangements for municipal elections, the same source specified.
