Legal expert: Delay announcement of results for two days is questionable



The legal expert Ali al-Tamimi, on Saturday, delayed the announcement of results for 48 hours after the closing of the ballot boxes, pointing out that the same devices are used in several countries and announce the results after only a few hours.

Tamimi said in a statement to media outlets that "the counting and sorting devices used by the Commission is the same usedin a number of countries in the region and European countries and announce the results within a few hours."

He added that "the determination of the Commission 48 hours to announce the election results is questionable, especially since the organs are counting the votes electronically and calculated by the same minute cast by the voter's vote."

The Electoral Commission had previously indicated that the announcement of the final results of the electoral process would take place 48 hours after the end of the vote and the closing of the ballot boxes to voters.
