Problems facing election; the threat to its legitimacy
Problems facing the parliamentary and district council election are beginning to surface. The developments unfolded following the launch of voter registration process by the Independent Election Commission (IEC) are upsetting. According to reports, the number of people who have visited the voter registration centers over the past few days is very low, and if it continues as now, it is impossible for IEC to register more than one million voters in two months. This comes as the process has begun from provincial centers, where people are more willing to go to polls, and security is relatively good. These reports suggest that the number of people turning out at voter registration centers in districts and rural areas may further drop.
