Ambiguous use of biometric system a trouble: Mohaqiq

The second Deputy Chief Executive, said on Saturday in a meeting with American ambassador to Afghanistan John Bass, “after a long period of controversy with the political parties, the government has finally accepted the use of biometric technology on the election day, but the use of this technology is still unclear. Political parties must be content with this issue; otherwise, it will be a problem.”

The Deputy Chief Executive added that in order to increase transparency and gain public confidence and oversee the central biometrics system in the elections, a Joint Monitoring Committee with the membership of representatives of political parties, the government and the election commission should be developed.

The United States ambassador said that, despite all the challenges ahead, the Afghan people are still eager to hold elections.

“To ensure the transparency in the election, people’s confidence in the process should be gained.”, he added.
