« I am the President of the Electoral Committee. It is legitimate and independent. We held a meeting and made many decisions. I am committed to them. Otherwise, I do not care of anything else. I respect the sports minister. He is free to mee anyone, » said Ba Amer.

« The Electoral Assembly date may be changed due to the legislative elections campaign. Otherwise, the Electoral Committee will not change its decisions, » he added.
