AMMAN — The timeframe for personal objections to the initial voter tables for the Governorate Council, Municipal Council, and Amman Municipality Council elections expired on Tuesday, which allows the Independent Election Commission time to arrive at its decision on the objections to "third parties" and the Civil Status and Passport Department to adjudicate "personal" objections by January 3, 2022.اضافة اعلان

According to a member of the board of commissioners of the Independent Election Commission Jihad Momani, the legal deadline for objections to third parties expired on Saturday and totaled 1,553, whereas the number of personal objections to voters’ tables expired on Tuesday and reached 1,430 by Monday.

Momani told Al-Ghad News, that making a decision on the objections will continue for 10 days, whereby the results will be presented on January 4.
The Independent Election Commission shall also present the results relating to the applications and objections to "third parties" through the presiding officers in places where they are publicly available, for the subsequent commencement of the appeals phase.

Momani assured that the commission was working to double-check voter records "annually" for update purposes, while the law stipulates that those records should be checked at least once a year.

Momani explained that there are differences between election tables in parliamentary and local administration elections pertaining to age and civil status, where reference is made to the voter’s residence in the local administration elections under the civil status data.
