August 14 2000

Mr. Alawi Al-Attas chairman of the Supreme Committee for Elections said in a statement to the Yemen Times that the new elections law enhanced the democratic and elections experiments in Yemen. He added that the new law avoided all shortcomings of the previous law. The committee is working hard to achieve an accurate and well organized electoral table.
About results of meetings with the NDI delegation he said that they agreed on some points and disagreed on others.
About 195 thousand repeated names have been dropped from voting lists by the Supreme Committee for Elections. That may help regain people’s trust in elections, NDI reported.
