Herat electoral stakeholder’s forum third round

FEFA conducted the third round of electoral forum on credibility of electoral process in Herat province on Wednesday October 10, 2018 at Esteghlal conference hall. In this program, there were 27 participants of which 9 were women. Participants included the Independent Election Commission representative, the Electoral Complaints Commission representative, representative of Herat Local Government Office, representatives of Political Parties, Civil Society, Women and Youth, the UNAMA office and Human Rights Commission. There were participants from Herat University and the Parliamentary Nominees as well. Seyed Ezzatollah Alami, representative of the Independent Election Commission (IEC), said the recruitment of our staff has happened. We previously hired a number of officers through the Kankur exam, which is a district authority and public awareness officer. And another number were hired for polling centers. The rest of the staff were hired for Election Day as: Identity Officer, Sheet Distributor and Controller and they were selected among school teachers and Education Department of the state. At this stage of the election, we have no staff other than our school teachers and Education Department of the Herat. The method of using biometrics has been taught for all IEC staff members, and they are responsible for teaching biometrics to other officers at polling centers. He added that we have more than 1,000 biometric devices in our 300 polling stations, which operate with power and can use both the OFF LINE and ON LINE methods to transfer the data to themselves, and then these data are subsequently collected and calculated at the center. The biometric mode of operation is such that the voter registration tool operates offline. In many places and locations around Herat, the Internet does not work and the biometric device can record voter information. The voters' list will be installed on polling centers and voters will find their names and profile by visiting the polling stations and receive ballot papers.
