The High National Elections Commission (HNEC), announced that the number of registered voters from outside the country has reached 6,872 voters, as of August 23.

The registration process comes following an announcement by the HNEC, that it would permit citizens residing outside of the country to register to vote via the commission’s website last month, prior to extending the registration period up until September 17.

The registrars were distributed to several Arab and Western countries, including the United Kingdom, Malaysia, Turkey, Canada, the United States, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates, amongst others.
