Candidacy filing for Libya elections opens today

Candidacy filing for the Libyan presidential and parliamentary elections opened Monday, continuing to Nov 22 for the presidential elections and to Dec 7 for the parliamentary elections.

During a press conference in Tripoli Sunday, Chairman of the High National Elections Commission (HNEC), Imad al-Sayeh, announced that voter ID cards for the 2.8 million registered voters will be distributed in 1,906 polling situations across the country starting Monday.

The HNEC chairman revealed that the commission had received from the House of Representatives all the technical amendments relating to the electoral laws, which he says would “enable the commission to implement the two electoral processes without challenging the implementation procedures.”
