The advisor to the prime minister for elections, Hussain al-Hindawi, confirmed, on Thursday, that holding early elections on the tenth of next October does not accept any postponement.
Al-Hindawi said in an interview followed by the information that "holding early parliamentary elections on the tenth of next October does not accept postponement," noting that "all that is said about the postponement is mere wishes and perceptions that are not based on facts."
He added, “The Commission has started implementing its electoral plans, starting with the extension of the registration period for political alliances until 5/21/2021, as well as extending the period for receiving candidate lists until 4/17/2021.” He considered these deadlines as deadlines for registering alliances and receiving candidate lists, which cannot be extended for technical reasons except for checking names Candidates and replacement of those who do not meet the legal requirements.
Al-Hindawi praised the “exceptional efforts currently being made by the electoral commission’s staff,” stressing “the need for the commission to double its press and media conferences to clarify and explain its plans and procedures to the public opinion and voters as well as the parties, alliances, candidates and the international community.” End / 25
