“The new national identity cards distribution should begin soon.” The Kandahar police chief

The police chief of southern Kandahar province General Abdul Raziq Gen says the distribution of the electronic Identity Cards is a serious requirement, insisting that the distribution of the new national identity cards should begin soon.

He also welcomes and supports the preliminary steps taken for the launch of the electronic National Identity Cards (e-NIC).

In the meantime, Gen. Raziq says that he will not allow anyone to take political advantage by creating hurdles on the way for the launch of the electronic National Identity Cards.

According to Gen. Raziq, the legal formalities for the distribution of the new national identity cards have been finalized and hence the program should be launched as soon as possible.

He also insisted that the new identity cards should be distributed based on the amended law that was passed by the joint parliamentary commission.

The decree by President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani was issued to modify the controversial article#6 of the census law which prevented the launch of electronic national identity cards distribution since a long period of time.

The decree stated that the nationality of the ID card holders should be mentioned as Afghan while the religion should also be reflected in the card as Islam.
