The Subcommittee for the Election of the Misrata Municipal Council announced on Tuesday that the Municipality is ready for elections, despite the exceptionally difficult circumstances faced by the city.

The Subcommittee confirmed its attempt to hold the polls before the Eid Al-Adha holidays, adding in a statement that it has extended the acceptance of applications for membership to run for the council, until June 25.

It went on to note that the number of voters, registered in the official system is quite low and not the number one might expect, considering the city has a population of half a million citizens.
