He further claimed that the distribution of fake identity papers aims for the engineering of the upcoming parliamentary elections.
“They have received three thousand identity cards from the Population Registration Office and distributed them among their supporters,” said Abdul Ahad Afzali, a former MP from Badakhshan province.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Population Registration Office rejected the allegations, saying it is part of ongoing competitions between rival electoral candidates.
“The identity cards have been distributed based on the law and there was no wrongdoing. These are just baseless allegations,” said Rohullah Ahmadzai, spokesman of the Population Registration Office.
Earlier, some residents of Nuristan province claimed that illegal identity cards have been distributed by the Population Registration Office without consideration of the statistics of the area, but the reports were called as baseless.
