IEC claims transparent elections despite technical problems

By: The Kabul Times

KABUL: Addressing a press conference here in Kabul, Independent Election Commission (IEC) said it has conducted a transparent presidential election.
“As a result of tireless efforts and support of stakeholders, transparent elections have been conducted. We are grateful to the stakeholders,” the commission said, acknowledging some technical problems.
Commenting on delays in data transfer, they blamed Dermalog servers for the problem. “Two experts of the firm have arrived at IEC, working to resolve the issue.”
As many as 22,000 result sheets have so far been entered into the system, with 2,000 biometric devices quarantined due to problems. The data on these devices would be fed into the system soon after IEC’s order and in the presence of observers, the officials promised.
On the hacking of biometric servers, they said responsibility for protecting the servers against cyber-attacks lay with Dermalog. The company says efforts were made but no server was hacked. The IEC assured all stakeholders, particularly the Afghan people and candidates, of transparency in the remaining part of the electoral process.
