The head of the Security Directorate of Tripoli Salah Al-Samui said Monday that the Directorate and security officials in the municipalities of Greater Tripoli rejected the idea of holding the secondary school certification exams in the universities.

Al-Samui clarified in a press statement that during their meeting with Interior Minister Abdul Salam Ashour they objected on the length of time set for the exams, which poses a security risk to students considering the tense situation the country is going through, pointing out that this requires declaring a state of emergency for two weeks, which he said would be "extremely difficult."

The Ministry of Education issued a decision in last March to carry out the exams for the secondary certificate for the current year in universities instead of schools, calling on the security services to develop a plan in this regard.
