By the end of the appeals stage, we will know whether it will be possible to commit to the December 24 official date for the presidential elections, the head of the High National Elections Commission (HNEC), Imad Al-Sayeh, said.

In an interview with Al-Jazeera, Al-Sayeh indicated that the HNEC may request an extension after the appeals process is completed, adding that they are working in an unstable and abnormal political environment.

Al-Sayeh indicated that securing elections is an inherent specialty of the Ministry of Interior and that the HNEC will be a partner of the Ministry in dealing with violations of all kinds.
