The delegation affirmed that they did not receive any complaints from any citizens or the representatives of the candidates.

“The citizens were enthusiastic while they were casting their votes in the different poll stations,” the mission added.

As for security measures, the delegation said the poll stations were secured and supervised by judges throughout the governorates.

The delegation of Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) is due to hold a press conference in the Foreign Ministry Wednesday to announce the results of election monitoring over two days of the voting.
