For a next neutral and independent election body.

TUNIS (TAP) - The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP,) in partnership with the European Union election assistance teams and the international foundation for election systems IFES, held here on Monday a conference on the following subject: "Founding Principles in the Conception of the Future Election Body: Tunisian and International Prospects."

The conference, attended by some 50 Tunisian and foreign participants, gathered experts and constituent assembly members in charge of drafting the election law as well as delegates of the civil society and the independent election body ISIE.

The aim was to discuss prerogatives and duties to be granted to the future national authority that will hold next parliamentary elections.

Tunisian and international experts made short reports about the different angles of the election administration (typology, principles, mandate, budget, organisation) and also about similar experiences in countries like Palestine or Tasmania.

The conference recommendations called for setting up a neutral and independent authority to be listed in the next Constitution.
