IHEC: 75% of Sulaymaniyah voters registered for biometric cards
Sulaymaniyah — With the Kurdistan Parliament elections on the horizon, a significant 75% of eligible voters in the Sulaymaniyah governorate have registered, according to figures provided by the Iraqi electoral commission.
Amanj Aziz, the Director General of the Sulaymaniyah office for the Independent High Electoral Commission of Iraq, informed 964media about the commission’s diligent efforts in voter biometric registration.
“As of February 20, we have been actively engaged in the biometric registration process. It’s imperative for every eligible voter to register and obtain a biometric card, as the upcoming Kurdistan Parliament elections will exclusively utilize biometric data for voter verification. Those unregistered by this process will be ineligible to vote,” Aziz explained to 964media.
Biometric registration centers across Sulaymaniyah’s districts and sub-districts are open from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. Applicants are required to present necessary documents for registration, which include a national Identity Card or civil status ID, a recent photograph, and proof of residence.
