Tunisia: NCA Members Reject Article 22 of Draft Law On IHAE

Bardo — National Constituent Assembly (NCA) members, who met Wednesday in Bardo, rejected Article 22 of the organic draft law on the Independent Higher Authority for Elections (IHAE).

Article 22 states that public administrations, with all their categories, must make available to the IHAE, if needed, all the necessary financial and human resources and statistics and data they have to help it fully discharge its mandate.

Under this Article, different institutions of the Prime Ministry should promote co-ordination between public administrations and the IHAE during elections and referendums.
