The Benghazi IDPs Organization called on the president and members of the Supreme Judicial Council to develop specific laws that guarantee their rights to challenge the electoral process in their temporary residence in the western region.

In its memo to the Supreme Judicial Council, the organization demanded appropriate solutions and mechanisms to address this problem, including naming a central appeals department at the High National Electoral Commission (HNEC) HQ in Tripoli to look into the IDPs appeals.

The organization explained that HNEC had identified special voting centers for the IDPs in the western region, confirming that the displaced have registered in the defined locations in preparation for their participation in the electoral process.

It is noteworthy that the Supreme Judicial Council approved the executive regulations for the mechanisms for appointing and defining the tasks of appeal committees so that appeals are submitted in the appeal courts of the constituencies in which the candidates reside.
