Commission decided to extend the deadline of receipt electronic cards
12:49:19 / 04/2014
Khandan - decided the Electoral Commission for elections to extend the deadline of receipt electronic cards for a week. said Commission President Serbst Mustafa at a press conference in Arbil and attended "Khandan", said the Commission decided to extend the deadline of receipt electronic cards until the twenty-seventh of the month of April. said Mustafa he will be allocated only one center in each province for the distribution of electronic voter cards during the period which was extended.
*** Actually there was a singular article some days ago stating that the deadline would be extended until the 25th already, and now it is to be the 27th, so is it a singular extension of one week or two extensions of five and then two days, respectively ? Likely it makes no difference. *** edit by chattels
