Municipal elections-Nidaa Tounes: party’s candidate lists to be announced next week-end (Mongi Harbaoui)

The National Elections Committee, created by the Nidaa Tounes movement, will meet next week-end to announce the lists of party candidates for the upcoming municipal elections, the party’s spokesman told TAP on Thursday.

Mongi Harbaoui said the party in power is ahead in the formation of electoral lists and intends to participate in the municipal polls in all 350 constituencies.

He indicated that most of the lists that have already been formed include, in addition to party members, a number of independents and active figures in the constituencies.

“We have rented a new office to be inaugurated in the near future to allow the party’s national committee of municipal elections to meet with the members of the candidate lists and to examine the preparations for these polls, he pointed out.

Harbaoui added that the party’s regional committees held meetings with leaders of the Nidaa executive bureau and some members of his parliamentary group to collect files containing data on candidates in the 24 governorates.

The Nidaa Tounes Movement had announced last January 6 the creation of this national committee for the formation of candidate lists of the municipal elections.

It consists of Salma Elloumi, chair of the support committee, Anis Ghedira, chair of the technical committee, Chokri Ben Hassan, chair of the voters and regional monitoring committee, Faouzi Elloumi, chair of the list evaluation and qualification committee and Abdelaziz Kotti, chair of the committee of relations the government, regional and local authorities and with political parties.

It also announced that it had appointed 29 leaders of the Movement, most of them members of the government and advisers to the President of the Republic, to oversee the formation of candidate lists.
