Municipal poll 2018-Kasserine: Regional union of internal security forces boycotts elections

Ahmed Misaoui, member of the regional union of internal security forces in Kasserine, reaffirmed on Sunday the commitment of the union members to boycott the municipal elections in order to preserve the neutrality of the security and penitentiary institution and to keep it far from political controversy.

Other reasons are behind this decision, he told TAP, since the right of security officers to vote was limited to municipal election. The latter, he said, can not participate in the presidential and legislative elections and follow the election campaign to become acquainted with the candidate lists.

Misaoui added that the security forces are also threatened with dismissal if they participate in the meetings and activities of the candidates in the 2018 municipal elections, stressing that their main demand remains the enactment of a law that protects them when they are on duty.
