The Head of the High National Elections Commission (HNEC), Emad El-Sayeh, has called for better communication between the commission and the 6+6 Committee during the inauguration of the Electoral Administration Office in Sirte.
He emphasized the importance of agreeing on articles and texts to ensure a successful electoral process, as he expressed concern about the weakening communication with the committee since it moved outside Libya.
There were several observations about the electoral laws that the committee had reached, and it is crucial to have joint efforts to implement those laws, El-Sayeh said.
He stressed the need for the 6+6 Committee to reach out to all components of Libyan society to ensure that electoral laws are accepted by everyone, including the parties involved in the electoral process.
The HNEC head also highlighted that the House of Representatives had issued a law, which assigned the commission to handle the local elections, confirming that the executive regulations for municipal elections would be issued soon and would become effective in the first quarter of 2024.
"The Commission is committed to addressing any problems or difficulties that voters, candidates, or those involved in the electoral process may face," El-Sayeh said, adding that the HNEC has been working for 12 years to support the electoral process's infrastructure.
He confirmed that the municipal council elections will take place in the first quarter of 2024, revealing that there are now nine electoral commission HQ in place to help manage the electoral process effectively.
