A spokesperson from IEC has confirmed that the commission has begun to train its employees in the usage of biometric devices.
It will be a 3 day training programme for 250 employee. These employees will then be sent to provincial offices to teach the other employees.
On the election day, first fingerprints of voters and their pictures will be recorded in the biometric devices and then the photos in the voters’ IDs and the stickers on the IDs will be recorded in the devices prior to voting.
The biometric devices in their first batch arrived at Kabul earlier this week and have been topic of controversy regarding the entire election process.
