A number of analysts, politicians and civil society activists due to security reasons, lack of budget, lack of technical preparations and some other problems consider holding the election difficult even impossible. However, some others calling such judgment unfair insist that in spite of the existence of certain problems, the state has strong will and determination for holding parliamentary elections and already made certain efforts to provide the ground for that purpose. Determining the date of the elections, finding funding resource, distribution of electronic identity cards and setting up constituencies are the major evidences that show; the National Unity Government is committed for holding the elections.
On the other hand July 7 which has determined the day of holding the elections there is enough time for the state to settle the remaining problems. Even though, the political experts and people insist that there are certain logical and fundamental questions regarding to holding the elections should be responded. The relevant authorities should answer the questions regarding to security problems which stand as an obstacle on way of holding a general election. How it be conducting election in insecure and under the rule of armed oppositions areas?
In addition to security, there are rumors about administrative corruption within independent commission of elections. How the relevant authorities would deal with corruption in the commission?
There were many complaints about existence of fraud and violations in previous elections, how the relevant authorities guarantee that the bitter experiences of the past not repeated again. How do they cover the constituencies in insecure regions? And other related questions need to be answered. The most important thing is the action of relevant authorities and implementing the commitments of the leadership unity government regarding holding a transparent election in order to restore the trust of people once again in to this national program.
