ECC to Deploy More Employees to Provinces


The Electoral Complaints Commission (ECC) is prepared to add five new commissioners for each province to assist in matters of finance, investigation management and complaint evaluations.
"We provided a three-day seminar to 170 members," ECC Secretariat chief Sediq Setegh said. "These educational seminars make participants ready to perform their jobs in the provinces."
The new employees are expected to help address complaint cases regarding electoral campaigns, presidential candidates or provincial council candidates.
ECC officials admitted insecurity and staff inadequacies were major obstacles to their work.
"We are not in good shape logistically, which could lead to some problems in the future," ECC Investigation and Complaints Evaluation Manager in Nimroz, Parwez Nowbahari, said.
"We have many security problems, traveling from here [Kabul] to Zabul is especially challenging," ECC Investigation and Complaints Evaluation Manager in Zabul, Sebghatullah, said.
ECC officials claim to have received 20 complaints since the start of presidential and provincial council campaigns. The commission has said it plans to hire more employees if needed.
