The Director of the Provincial Administration in the Ministry of Local Government Salah Fatah, said Tuesday, that the voter registration for the Local Municipals' Elections will commence at the end of October.

Fatah explained in a press statement that the Presidential Council's decision stipulates that the elections be conducted by the roster system instead of the individual one.

He also pointed out the decision provides for the cancellation of the previous registration conducted through the HNEC, indicating that in the event of a tie between two lists in the same municipality, a second vote shall be taken.

More than 76 municipality councils have completed their mandates and are awaiting local elections.
