180 people from 35 countries have expressed interest in observing the upcoming national elections, said Sehli Sabreen, spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs told the reporters these things on Thursday.

Sehli Sabreen said that 180 people from 35 countries have expressed their interest to observe the upcoming national elections. Apart from this, 71 foreign journalists have applied to collect election news. The Election Commission is verifying them. But still their list is not final.

On the occasion of the election, the government has assigned 30 officials to provide overall assistance during the monitoring of election observers from abroad. They have been appointed as ‘Welcome Officers’ and attached to the Ministry of External Affairs. A notification in this regard was issued by the Ministry of Public Administration yesterday Wednesday by order of the President.

According to the order, 30 officials have been appointed as host officers from December 31 to January 10 and attached to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for their overall support during the observation of foreign election observers from different countries of the world on the occasion of the 12th National Assembly elections.

Earlier, the Election Commission (EC) issued a notification last October calling for applications from foreign observers and journalists interested in monitoring the election. Interested candidates were asked to apply by November 21. Then the application period was extended till December 7. After verification, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs issues visas to foreign observers and foreign journalists.
