ENTIKHABAT 97: Issue of Fake IDs Discussed
Independent Election Commission (IEC) officials said on Sunday that about 60 voter register books have gone missing in six provinces.
This came a day after political parties displayed thousands of fake IDs and books of stickers for voter cards.
In response to the expose, the IEC held a press conference on Sunday and officials said that the registers, that have disappeared – each containing the names of 600 registered voters - have either been stolen by thieves or seized by armed opponents.
