Forum condemns accusation

DESPITE Elections Supervisor Mohammed Saneem warning the Citizens' Constitutional Forum (CCF) of their alleged breach of section 115 of the Electoral Decree, CCF maintains they have not breached the section.

A statement issued by the NGO yesterday, quoted CEO Akuila Yabaki saying they strongly opposed the allegations from Mr Saneem.

"CCF strongly condemns allegations from Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem that it has breached the Electoral Decree 2014 by publishing a research paper on international benchmarks of free and fair elections and holding a public conversation on the same paper," it read.

"The content of the research paper and discussions focused on the universal benchmarks of free and fair elections in general, and assessed how the current electoral process meets this criterion.

"The conversation was not directed solely at voters or potential voters, and was not intended to provide voter information or education about the elections to be held on September 17."

Mr Saneem earlier said CCF had to recall their publication and remove a live feed of the same paper from their website because it was a breach of section 115.
