Prisoners Prepare to Vote

By Afghan News
















Voting centres will be opened in most prisons across Afghanistan so that inmates can exercise their right to vote, said election officials.

But not all prisoners will be able to cast their ballots, said Afghan Independent Election Commission spokesman Noor Mohammad Noor.

Only those prisoners who have voting cards that were obtained before going to jail will be able to participate in the election, he added.
