Ministry of Interior: Metacenter will be completed in no less than 5 months

The Ministry of Interior and Municipalities presented a study on the adoption of the Mega Centers mechanism in the parliamentary elections of 2022, and this study included the legal, procedural and logistical aspects, and the required human resources,

The study that Prime Minister Najib Mikati requested from the ministry after a letter sent from President Michel Aoun, concluded that it is impossible to approve major polling stations within the deadlines imposed in the current election law in light of the need to make legal amendments, in addition to the logistical and procedural obstacles, and the needs at the level of human resources, noting that the time required to complete the preparations is no less than five months, as of the date of publishing the law and issuing implementing decrees when needed, and that the total cost of the project is about $5,872,500.
