People not provided adequate election awareness: CEO

People not provided adequate election awareness: CEO

Jun 25, 2019 - 19:03

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah after facing difficulty in finding his name on the voter lists at a voter registration center in Kabul on Tuesday asked the Independent Election Commission (IECinfo-icon) to write the names of previous voters on walls.

A statement from the office of Abdullah received by Pajhwok Afghan News said that the CEO visited the voter registration center in Naderia High School in Kabul today.

The CEO looked for his name in the list of voters who cast their votes in October 2018 Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon elections, but he faced with some issues in the process.

Hawa Alam Nuristani, IEC chief, when asked about the problem the CEO faced at the voter registration center, said that some issues persisted in the process but the commission was trying to resolve them.

Abdullah said people were yet to be provided adequate awareness regarding the voter registration process. He asked the IEC to pin the list of names of voters who had already registered with the commission or share them online with people.

People who had registered as voters for the Wolesi Jirga elections do not need to register again, but they can visit their voter registration centers to check their names in the list.

The ongoing voter registration process is registering those who did not take their voter card in the previous election or they have reached the age of 18 years or failed to register in the previous process for some reasons.

Abdullah said, “Only three days remain in the end of voter registration process and the IEC should try to facilitate people, provide them with awareness so they get assured their names are available in the list of voters.”

The voter registration process began on June 8. The CEO asked those who did not register so far to register in the process. The people who have registered for the Wolesi Jirga elections should make sure their names are available in the lists, he said.

The CEO said he would also meet election officials and ask them to resolve problems in the registration process.
