MEHWAR: Issues Facing Polling Centers
The Independent Election Commission’s (IEC) operational department has sent a letter to the IEC secretariat saying that it could not fully assess some polling centers.
IEC operational chief said in the letter while most polling centers have been reassessed, in some provinces the voters still do not have equal access to polling centers.
According to the letter, the assessments were carried out to create equal distances to the polling centers and help people to have easy access to the centers, but this was not achieved.
Election commission secretary Abdul Badi Sayyad has meanwhile accepted that some problems in assessing the polling centers exist but said the latest assessment is not final.
In this episode host, Masoud Malik discusses the topic with IEC commissioner Mazullah Dawlati.
