Controversial and contested elections to Islamic Commission of Melilla

The Islamic Commission of Melilla (CIM) is made up of four different Islamic entities in the city. On 8th January the Muslim population of the city was called to vote in the election for the president of the CIM. Controversy has surrounded the process.

One of the Muslim associations that comprises the CIM has denounced the lack of transparency and the existence of serious irregularities in the democratic process of election. Now, the same association is demanding a new election on the basis that the first was not legitimate.
