Al-Sayeh revealed that there are 1912 electoral centres with 7,000 polling stations, which need highly professional personals to make the electoral process a success in any future electoral process.
There has been a widespread controversy in the country over whether to hold a parliamentary and presidential elections before the end of this year or to postpone it until holding a referendum on the constitution, so the elections would be held under a constitutional rule.
The House of Representatives failed last week to pass the referendum law on the constitution, after a dispute between its members over certain articles of the law.
