IEC computer system inactive for past week

AT News Report

KABUL: The Independent Election Commission (IEC) says that its computer system that is linked to the biometric has been inactive for the past one week.

A German computer company responsible for technical issues of the election commission’s computer system, has sent experts for the solution, but an official of the election commission said Friday that they have not managed to solve the problem completely.

Habib Rahman Nang, head of the commission’s secretariat, said they would announce the preliminary results of the September 28th presidential election if the biometric system problem was solved by Friday.

Nang said the commission was not informed that Kabir Farahi was introduced to judiciary for preventing efforts to hack the servers.

The biometric system that sends voting information and sensitive materials from different areas to the election commission’s headquarters, has not been active for the past week and the German engineers have not found the basic problem to reactivate the system.

Nang said that German experts are working hard to solve the server problem.

Though the commission promises that the system would be active soon, but some monitors reject it, saying it would take long time to resolve the problems.
