Voting on the new Tunisian constitution began in Tunisia on Monday, while the Electoral Commission announced the readiness of polling stations to receive voters.

Thousands of polling stations in Tunisia completed preparations to receive voters as election teams distributed ballot boxes and supplies to polling stations.

The process is taking place amid tight security at polling and counting centers across the country, with thousands of security personnel and army personnel on guard.

Yesterday, the country entered a period of electoral silence, in which any form of election campaigning is prohibited.

In the six electoral districts outside Tunisia, as of 6:00 p.m. Tunisia time on Sunday, participation rates in the 2022 referendum on its second day did not exceed 6.5%, as announced by the head of the Independent High Authority for Elections, Farouk Bouskar.

Bhauskar stressed that the voting results will be announced with complete transparency.

In the same context, Tunisian expatriates continued to vote outside the country on the new draft constitution.

The Independent High Commission for Elections declared that no major problems and difficulties were registered in the community during the voting.

He further informed that voting activities will continue in 46 countries and more than 600 centers abroad on Monday and the centers will close at 10 pm local time.
