Electoral Commission chairman Chen Bunn Young revealed the much awaited Electoral Decree could be released by the end of next week.
"We were virtually involved with it for about a week or two and I think the decree should be coming out by the end of next week," Mr Young said.
"If there is going to be any delay it's probably attributed to our side.
"The commission has to look at it with the view that the decree has to bring about fair and credible elections so we made our comments.
"There was exchange back and forth. They (drafters) came back for clarifications. They asked us why we were making this particular comment on this particular section ... so there was exchange of dialogue with the drafters."
Mr Young said it was important for the decree to be all-inclusive to have a flawless one-day election.
He said emphasis would be placed on the decree to deliver counting in one-day as counting will start after 5pm. Consultants from Australia and New Zealand are also working on the decree.
