Bardo — The Consensus Commission at the National Constituent Assembly, on Monday evening, reached compromise on articles of the draft electoral law, particularly those related to electoral offences, Deputy Habib Khedher told TAP.
He also said that the issue of vertical parity and the male/female alternation in electoral lists was resolved during the commission's meeting held on Tuesday.
However, the principle of horizontal parity is still causing controversy, he indicated.
Regarding Article 167 under which some symbols of the former regime shall be banned from running for the next elections, he said this issue is on the agenda of the consensus commission's meeting but has not been resolved yet.
On the separation between presidential and legislative elections, Khedher said it was a political issue that cannot be settled solely in the NCA and the consensus commission.
