Kabul (BNA) The altars of mosques, schools and media are effective sites for accelerating the process of registrations for voting in the country.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes Independent Commission of Elections for accelerating the process of registration the names of voters has extorted in a new method to encourage people to participate in process of registrations.
Lately, the members of independent commission of elections have met separately the state authorities including President Ghani, members of Peace High Council and the authorities of Ministry of Haj and Religious Affairs.
During the visits the members of independent commission for elections have asked the state leadership and state organs to encourage the people to participate in registrations process.
It has passed more than one week since the commencement of registration the names of the voters, but the people have not participated as it expected. The reasons for that are very clear: First the people have no good memories from the previous elections. Secondly, the registrations take place according to identity cards while the major parts of people especially rural areas residents have no identity card. Distribution of ten million new identity cards will take a long time.
The other issue is unawareness of people from the programs of elections commission, because the commission for every elections program uses a new procedure which causes problems to the people.
Therefore it was better the independent commission for elections before starting the registrations process concentrated on public awareness on relevant affairs to the elections.
Since the commission has not done so, the process of registration is facing a huge gap that is unawareness of people.
Knowing the gap the independent commission of elections is seeking to fill the gap by using new programs.
Recently the authorities of commission in meetings with state authorities presented some of the problems they are facing. Now they want use the altars of mosques and other important public places to draw the people to stations where the process of registrations going on.
Although the authorities of the commission became aware from their fault a little later, but still they have an opportunity using new methods encourage people going the registration centers give an incentive to the process.
Using the altars of mosques, schools and media for public awareness is a good move to introduce the process of elections as a national process which determines the destiny of the country; participating in process in fact they carry out their national and compatriotic obligation.
Avoiding going to registration centers and non-participation in elections will lead to a critical political situation in the country, which our compatriotic people never want.
