ANFREL Observers Concern on Afghan Fake Voter Cards
Since the news about the fake voter cards made a headlines, ANFREL is taking this opportunity to request all election stakeholders to exercise a thorough observation since Election Day is just 48 hour away.
ANFREL concern is how this finding (see photo) can be detected and how it will tarnish the credibility of the Wolesi Jigra which was already marred by outstanding issue, for example the shut down of polling centres due to security threats.
ANFREL pays special attention on this issue after our finding in Mazar that the fake voter card do exist and have making its way across the country. Reports by international organizations and media group such as Al Jazeera should not be taken lightly or simply rubbishing it as mere rumours. Pakistan has been used as the factory to produce fake voters card and there's no point of denying that this is not taking place just because it has not been confirmed.
We call for IEC to take action immediately and professionally about this finding.
