Ninth Report on the Observation of Voters Registration Process

Important findings (from July 21, 2013 to July 27 2013) Findings show that in some provinces, people were unenthused and less driven to participate in the process due to insecurity. The security condition has direct impact on the VR process. The following events took place during last week: explosion of a mine in center of Ghazni province, naturalization of a mine in center of Farah province, and explosion of a bomb near the police HQ in Baghlan province. The mentioned events didn’t cause closure of the centers but scared people decreased the participation level of people. In Zabul and Paktika provinces the insurgents advertised that taking part in the VR process and voting is unlawful. The threats had negative impacts on the process. Delay in the opening of the centers and lack of on time presence of IEC staff at the centers In some provinces the VR staffs do not observe their working schedule which encourages lack of interest in people for VR process. In Takhar, Ghazni, Farah, Mazar-Sharif, and Herat Many IEC staff members come ten minute to one hour late in the mornings and close the centers ten to one hour early than the schedule and even some are absent. Fraud and Violation: Some fraud and Violations have taken place in some centers. In Balkh province two women who introduced themselves representatives of UNHCR took several groups of house wives by the name of widow and refuges to the female site of Mawlana Jalaluddin Balkhi voting center to receive cards and after they received cards the mentioned two women collected their cards. The women who were taken to the center said, they were house wives and widows not refugees and instead of their cards they will receive 100$. In Paktika province due to cultural problems the women are not permitted to come out of their houses so very body can bring a list of women and receive voting Cards for them.
