JALALABAD (PAN): Mobile voter registration teams have been working across eastern Nuristan province, an Independent Election Commission (IEC) official said on Sunday.

Voters in the eastern province of Nuristan said they see no change in their lives in the past years.
They say no attention has been paid to their province, but they are participating in the election to bring change in the future.
The mountainous province with seven districts shares a border with Pakistan.
The economy of Nuristan is based on agriculture, forestry and animal husbandry.
The report below was prepared on the basis of interviews with eight people, two of them women, from the provincial capital and five districts last week.
 

Paroon (PAN): Residents of Nuristan complain multiple challenges including lawlessness, absence of schools buildings, health clinics and basic necessities of life.
Nabiullah Rashidi, resident of Doaab district of Nuristan told Pajhwok Afghan News that the main problem haunting the residents was insecurity.
The province has zero security but the concerned officials did not pay any attention to improve the law and order, he said, adding that owing to chaos government employees could not even move to their officers and the staff was confined to governor’s office.

Paroon (PAN): People of the restive Nuristan demanded the government should take stringent measures to improve deteriorated security and flush out insurgents from parts of the province.
People demand creation of more job opportunities, implementation of rehabilitation projects, construction of roads and equal opportunities of higher education both for male and female.
