No justification for attaching stickers to ID cards: CEO

No justification for attaching stickers to ID cards: CEO

May 14, 2018 - 16:05

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dr. Abdullah says there is no legal or technical justification for attaching special stickers to identity cards.

The voter registration process was marred by technical and legal flaws and no one had the right to impose their decisions on the people, he said on Monday.

Addressing the Council of Ministers, the CEO said the Population Registration Department (PRD) had advised stickers should be attached to ID cards.

“Four members of the Election Commission yesterday said attaching stickers was not allowed technically and legally. If this is the case, the issue is solved and the process should no longer continue,” he remarked.

Abdullah said the issue should not be taken as pressurising the election body. Whose members had complained they were being threatened and many things were imposed on them.

“The issue of attaching stickers could have been thrust on the Election Commission, which may have rejected it. I want to reiterate that no one has the right to question the independence of IECinfo-icon or threaten its members.”
