The government on Tuesday announced that municipal elections will be held on December 27, ending speculation that they would be postponed until after the end of the year.
“These are the nation’s polls, not the government’s,” Minister of State for Media Affairs and Communications and Government Spokesperson Abdullah Abu Rumman told reporters.
In a press briefing following yesterday’s Cabinet meeting, Abu Rumman said the government also decided to extend voter registration through October 25.
The decision was made to allow more citizens to register and take part in the upcoming polls, although 1.12 million had registered as of midday yesterday, he explained.
