Maaytah said in a press conference on Tuesday: “We aspire to a parliament with a partisan majority, and in the near future, there will be awareness campaigns to educate young people on the importance of participating in the elections; at the same time, educational curricula will teach issues like political pluralism and democracy.”

Maaytah said that the commission will not interfere in the work of political parties, “our only responsibility is to ensure that the new political party law’s technical, administrative and financial aspects are implemented”.

Maaytah pointed out that for the first time, the commission will grant financial support to parties that will participate in parliamentary elections.

Maaytah said that since the new Political Parties Law went into force, on May 14, the commission has held meetings with the parties and will keep channels of communication open with them throughout the course of its work.
