TAWDE KHABARE: Parliamentary Election Will Be Paper Ballot
The Independent Election Commission (IEC) said on Saturday it will send to the presidential palace an outline in terms of which the upcoming parliamentary election will be based on a paper-ballot system.
Previously, the commission wanted to digitalize the elections and create a digital voters’ list.
IEC operational deputy chief, Wasima Badghisi, said the outline will be sent to presidential palace today or tomorrow. The voters’ list will be prepared based on the paper-type identity cards that people currently hold. On the election day, people holding paper type identity documents will be able to vote.
