KABUL: To attract the attention of people regarding the election process, the Independent Election Commission (IEC) began another publicity program.
This program is begun yesterday by 1450 propagandists that 35 percent of them are women.
Head of secretariat of IEC Zia-ul-Haq Amarkhel told BNA that these propagandists would have activity in 34 provinces in collaboration of religious scholars and tribal dignitaries. Their programs are arranged for two months and two phases. Within first phase, the propagandists would persuade people to attend in election process and in second phase that taken place after elections, the propagandists would inform people about the results of elections and would propagate in the connection.
According to Amarkhel, despite the IEC speaks face to face about election programs with people through its propagandists, the commission would also inform people about importance of election process through mass media, publicity programs and other methods. The Kabul Times
