TAKANI: No Biometrics For Elections
Independent Election Commission (IEC) chief Abdul Badi Sayyad said at a press conference in Kabul on Wednesday that the commission will not be using a biometric system in this year’s elections as there is no time to roll out such a plan.
He said that although the commission was in favor of using technology for the elections, they did not have enough time to set up such a system as it would first need to be imported and then staff would need to be trained to use it.
In this episode of Takani, host Nemat Rawan discusses the topic with the following guests:
Mohammad Akbar Stanekzai, MP
Zalmai Zabuli, senator
