An elections-focused Tunis NGO is raising questions about President Kais Saied’s government’s management of the national voter registration process before Monday’s constitutional referendum. In a press conference Thursday, The Chaheed Observatory for monitoring elections and supporting democratic transition said it found irregularities in voter registration lists. The independent monitors said they found double registrations and deceased persons remaining on voter rolls. The group’s head, Alaa Ben Nejmeh, said it witnessed procedural breaches during the electoral authority’s registration process. Ben Nejmeh called on the government to work more closely with civil society organizations to ensure election integrity.
