Dermalog Sends All Voter Information to the IEC

The Independent Election Commission said on Friday that Dermalog had forwarded all voter information to the IEC.

Information about legitimate votes, cancelled votes and the number of votes by underage voters has been turned over. 

Officials in the IEC, however, said that the report did not specify in which province or poll station the votes were cast.

“How many duplicates ballots there are and how many of them have been removed from the voter list--we'll share that with you at the end of today or tomorrow,” said Zabiullah Sadat, deputy spokesman for the IEC. 

Earlier, Dermalog said they would provide the report on clearing the vote in three days, but now a week has passed.

A number of election observers have criticized the IEC for slow work and added that they are unaware of the full details of the process.

“A week has passed ... and no full report has been submitted to the IEC,” said Abdulqadir Hotkhail, an observer of Ghani’s team. 

“The company (Dermalog) didn't have the capacity to implement such a large project that it had contracted, and hopefully there were no other issues other than that,” said Younus Nawandish, an observer of Abdullah’s team. 

Meanwhile, Afghans have criticized the IEC for delaying the results announcement.

“The longer the process has been delayed, the more the crime, theft and robbery has been increased, and the locks (digital center lock) are broken. I don't know where you (the Election Commission) were sleeping,” said Abdul Wahid Wahidi, resident of Kabul. 

“The commission must not decide for the benefit of a particular group or candidate--and do not underestimate the clean vote of the Afghan people,” said Abdulraouf Pedram, resident of Kabul. 

Earlier, the IEC said that Dermalog had only submitted a report of 47,500 votes with duplicate photos or of underage voters to the commission.
