The voters’ photos, two fingers and their ID card photos should be counted.

Election should be held based on the simple ID cards.

The biometric should be safe from fraud.

The government should let people know about the contract over the biometric.

The political parties claim that voter registration process was full of fraud, so the election should be held based on the ID cards without stickers on their covers.

They said their suggestions were sent to government for more transparency and if the latter did not care the suggestions, they would continue struggles to make obstacles ahead of the election.

The Independent Election Commission says that counting of the votes from the areas without biometric would be done in the consultation, but adds that removing of stickers from the ID cards would not be possible and this was the final decision.
