Seventeen international election observers are scheduled to arrive in the country on September 13 to monitor the upcoming polls for the Northern, North Western and Central provincial councils.

A decision was taken to invite international observers following discussion between local monitoring groups, party representatives and the Department of Elections.

Nine observers from the Asian Network for Free Elections (ANFREL) had previously agreed to monitor the provincial election while another 8 international observers have expressed willingness to carry out monitoring duties.

They are expected to monitor the complete election situation in the country in addition to election day, a spokesman for the Elections Department said.

Elections for the North, North Western and Central Provincial Councils will be held on September 21.
