The voting process in the elections of the Board of Directors of the Chamber of Commerce in Alras (1444-1448 H session) began Monday at 09:00 am.
The session will last until 06:00 pm Tuesday evening, according to the new Chambers of Commerce Law, which aims to enhance transparency and raise the efficiency of the chambers' performance.
Eleven candidates are running and competing to win four seats out of the eight seats on the Chamber's Board of Directors, with each voter having the right of selecting two candidates.
A meeting was held between candidates and the supervisory committee from the Ministry of Commerce to go over the rules and regulations that will be in place during the election process, as well as the restrictions that candidates must avoid.
The Ministry urged chamber candidates to compete fairly, observe the rules, regulations, and guidelines, and respect the rights of other candidates, including refraining from interfering in their election campaigns.
