KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): A new building for the Independent Election Commission (IECinfo-icon) office in southeastern Khost province is being constructed with financial support from Japan, an official said on Tuesday.

The building is being constructed at the provincial complex located south of Khost City, the provincial capital. The foundation stone of the structure was laid by the governor accompanied by local officials on Tuesday.

Governor Hukam Khan said the Japanese-funded project was estimated to cost $365,000. The two-storey building would have eight administrative rooms and other facilities.

 “The project would take four months to complete, the building is of great importance because it is in a secure area and suitable for people to visit.”

Meanwhile, IEC local office head Abdul Rahman Mohabbat said the building would help resolve problems they currently faced. The election officials currently performed their duty from a rented house, he added.

“We are obliged to rent a house for our office sections amid security concerns.”
