The organic law governing the Election Commission (EC), which stipulates the dismissal of the current commissioners, has been published on the Royal Gazette website on Wednesday.



It is the first law of the 10 organic laws to be promulgated and it is essential for holding an election next year.

Three other organic laws required for the election, but not yet enacted, involve political parties, and the origins of Senators and members of the House of Representatives.

The organic law governing the EC is controversial because of the dismissal of the current EC members. It is unclear whether EC members will make any further petition to reverse the law and maintain their positions.
