She pointed out that the CEN authorized 120 polling stations in eight provinces to open before that time to meet the needs of voters who should work and for other justified reasons.

The CEN president added that authorities and the pioneers who guard the ballot boxes were present in all voting stations. The elections’ transparency, documentation, and national symbols are guaranteed.
