FEFA's observational report on election 2004

According to reports from different sources of FEFA; 97.65% of polling centers and 98.21% of polling stations were in the very places which were designated by JEMB. In some of the provinces as Logar, Herat, Kunduz and Takhar the regional offices of JEMB refused to assist FEFA employees to distinguish the polling centers. The importance of this matter is that JEMB had considered one day for voting. It required a proper planning to accomplish this task. All voters were expected to use their voting cards in one day -from 7:00am - 4:00pm- and not to miss their political right which they really deserve. And the results have indicated that the issue has been observed with a tiptop score. Security Issues: As we know security is vital issue, the importance of which is not only essential in political processes, but is also essential in all social, cultural, and economical aspects of life. On elections day have the security been confirmed around all the polling centers or not? Could the voters vote without fear and threatening? Here are the answers, which comes of analyzing the reports: The security was fully insured around all the polling centers. The police did their best to insure security for voters. But in some areas like Kandahar, Nengarhaar, Laghmaan and Logar the police used to stop the voters and beat them, but the graph of this instance is considerably low. The percentage of security that police forces provided around the polling centers observed by FEFA is 98% in average. It is worth mentioning that in some of the places like south-east and east, the tribal and local people were helping national police and Afghan National Army (ANA) in insuring better security.
