ENTIKHABAT 97: Election Irregularities Discussed
The Independent Election Commission (IEC) on Wednesday said that mismanagement during the October 20 elections badly damaged the public’s trust in the election management bodies.
The voter lists will be reformed and biometric identification devices will be used properly in the next elections, said IEC commissioner Sayed Hafiz Hashemi.
“People’s trust was damaged, there is no doubt about it, I am sure people’s trust was built on these processes, but it was damaged on 28 of Meza (20 October) and 29 Meza (21 October) and questions were raised over the abilities of the independent election commission,” said Hashemi.
The IEC said that it will officially announce the presidential elections calendar in two days.
