Tunisia: Isie Presents Financial Report to Media

Tunis — The Independent High Elections Authority (French: ISIE), on Wednesday, presented to the media a summary of its financial report for 2014.

The objective is to discuss recommendations and alternatives proposed to better ensure good governance and rationalise and reduce cost in the upcoming elections, said ISIE President Chafik Sarsar.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a meeting with the press, he said the report a copy of which was submitted to parliament for adoption contains a digest on the conduct of 2014 elections and proposals to remedy some shortcomings.

On the municipal elections, Sarsar said the authority has submitted recommendations on the election law, regarding the need to publish the map of electoral constituencies which numbers 322 to facilitate ISIE work.

ISIE President said it is difficult to maintain the agreed date (2016) for the organisation of municipal elections, noting that these events will be costly compared to the previous ones.

Reviewing the report of ISIE, member Anouar Ben Hassan said the gap between the resources and commitments of the commission is 2.03%

He also said the cost of electoral constituencies in Tunisia is higher than that of constituencies abroad.
