License plates, permits revoked for minor infractions to be returned for elections

Motorists who had their license plates or driving permits revoked up until Tuesday for minor infractions such as illegal parking can request that they be returned ahead of Sunday’s general elections.

The decision to facilitate voters who need to travel to cast their ballot was announced on Tuesday by the Public Order Ministry. It will go into effect on Wednesday.

The measure does not include motorists who were caught committing major violations like running a red light or driving under the influence of alcohol.
