HNEC: Final number of registered voters exceeded 2,865,000

The Libyan High National Elections Commission (HNEC) has announced that the final number of registered voters at home and abroad reached 2,865,624, coinciding with the announcement of the closure of the registration system for elections abroad.

The final number of voters included 1,628,305 men and 1,237,319 women, HNEC said in a statement on Saturday, noting that the number of voters registered at the registration system abroad reached 10,729.

HNEC pledged that it would assume all its responsibilities in order to achieve the highest levels of confidence and integrity in implementing the elections scheduled for December 24.

It also noted that it was preparing to launch the next stage, which is to deliver the ballot papers to the voters, through the polling stations in which they have registered.

The Commission called on all partners from civil society organizations, media, state institutions, and citizens in general to help in the success of the next stage by contributing in awareness campaigns and motivating voters to receive their cards so that they can participate in the voting process.
