The Central Committee for Municipal Elections attributed the delay in posting the results of the local government elections of nine municipalities, which took place Saturday, to the lack of vote-counting reports from some of these municipalities, affirming that results will be announced immediately, once the data from the voting counting centres are received.

Member of the operations room of the committee, Sadiq Al-thermal expressed his satisfaction over the turnout of voters in the municipal elections, saying that the numbers were very encouraging to go forward with the elections in other municipalities.
