      Chief Electoral Officer, Dr.  Riyadh Al-Badran has denied what media reported about the candidate’s lists showing that the circulated lists are incorrect and illegal. He also added that the IHEC is waiting to get the candidates list from the relevant bodies such as (Accountability and Justice Committee, Criminal Evidences, Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research and Ministry of Education). These lists of candidates will be audited to check the names listed in.

    The Board of Commissioners hasn’t approved any lists of candidates so far, based on that Dr. Al-Badran called the media to deliver accurate and correct electoral information from its accredited and reliable source like the IHEC.

     Finally, he pointed out that the IHEC will approve the lists of names of candidates once these lists are checked by the relevant bodies. The approved lists of candidates will be published formally in the IHEC website and the political entities will be notified thereof.

It’s worthy to say that the IHEC has sent the lists of candidates to the ministries and relevant bodies for the purpose of auditing them as per the provisions and specialization.
