Number of elected members of municipal council at centre of ISIE delegation talk with Local Affairs Minister

A delegation from the Independent High Authority for Elections (French: ISIE) led by its Vice President Anouar Belhassan Friday met with Local Affairs and Environment Minister Riadh Mouakher, Secretary of State for Local Affairs and Environment Chokri Belhassan and Director General for Local Communities Mokhtar Hammami.

The meeting turned on the nature of the legal text (government decree or ministerial order) that will be promulgated in order to set the number of the elected members of regional and municipal councils, pursuant to Article 117b of the election law.

An agreement was reached under which the Local Affairs Ministry will provide the election body with data on people ineligible to stand for election, in line with Article 49 of the Electoral Law. The latter mainly include judges, governors, first delegates, secretary generals of governorates, delegates, municipal and regional accountants, municipal and regional accountants and staff in municipalities and governorates.

Belhassan underlined the need to set up operation rooms for the submission of an expected high number of candidatures.

A workshop is to be held by the ministry and ISIE on September 12 to tackle election-related issues.
