The Independent Higher Authority for the Elections (ISIE) invited candidates for local councils to start preparing their files, to collect the required endorsements and to submit their candidacy files during the period from October 23 to November 1, 2023. The ISIE posted on its official website the documents attached to the application file, such as the application form, the declaration of honour form and the endorsement collection form. The required documents also include a summary of the candidate’s electoral programme signed by 50 backers from among registered voters in the constituency. One condition: 50% of the voters recommended must be women. The number of young backers under the age of 35 must not be less than 15 candidates. Voters may not endorse more than one candidate.
