Both the electoral bodies should address complaints in the presence of observers and all the stakeholders, he said and added If the polls went to a second round, womeninfo-icon should actively take part in the runoff.

Amir Bahir Baya, an elder and university teacher, praised government officials for remaining neutral during the election process.
