ALGIERS, Feb. 29 (Xinhua) -- Head of the Election Monitoring Commission in Algeria Slimane Boudi vowed Wednesday to increase the members of the body on the D-Day of the parliamentary election in May, to assure the smooth running of the electoral process.

The commission is currently composed of 316 magistrates. But it is not enough to guarantee the supervision of the electoral process on the D-Day of the poll, Boudi was quoted as saying by the local APS news agency.

The magistrate members of the commission are serving at the Supreme Court, the State Court, and at different courts nationwide.

Boudi meanwhile called for reinforcing the staff of the commission depending on the needs of each electoral district.

The Election Monitoring Commission, officially installed on Tuesday and part of the judicial guarantees provided by the government for holding fair and free election, includes a central commission consisting of 22 members chosen by President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, and a couple of sub-commissions in each electoral district.

Boudi indicated that the staff of sub-commissions in charge of monitoring election process abroad also needs to be reinforced if necessary.
