Kurdistan

Online diaspora voter registration extended

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Online voter registration for the Kurdistan diaspora has been extended following widespread problems with the process. However documentation requirements have not been amended.

The Kurdistan electoral commission announced on Tuesday afternoon that registration will now continue through to September 22, closing one day before diaspora voters cast their ballots. 

Many Kurds complained that they have been unable to register because they do not have a ration card or other mandatory documentation. 

Commission spokesperson Sherwan Zrar told Rudaw English that they have not changed what documents are required in order to complete registration. They have, however, set up an office to assist people with the registration process, including obtaining the ration card if it is held by family members living in Kurdistan. For diaspora Kurds who do not have and cannot obtain their ration card, the commission will record their names and details in order to know how many people are affected by this problem. 

This office can be contacted by email: help1.khec17@gmail.com, help2.khec17@gmail.com, or help3.khec17@gmail.com; or via Viber or WhatsApp: +964.751.740.9848, +964.751.740.9849, +964.751.740.9868, +964.772.909.2020, +964.772.909.3030, or +964.772.909.4040.

How dumb can this commission be. What do they mean by "record their names to find out how many people are affected?!!!" People want to vote not record their names for this stupid exercise. I can believe stupid people like this run commissions?

We already know the outcome of this referendum that shall be a majority YES, however the process and the basis this referendum is being carried out is utterly Flawed and no one is man enough to stand up and Call out against the Leadership who are illegitimate and holding office illegally. Thousands if not millions of kurds world wide are unable to excise their rights to vote. Without the Voice of the people through a transparent democratically elected parliament to be engaged and carry out the decision and be allowed to take part in making the choice to the future of many generations, What is based on wrong will and forever always be wrong. Otherwise Sykes Picot would be also legal for kurds the same way the Kurdish leadership is proceeding with the referendum and the elections
