Voter Registration Underway
KABUL, Feb 24 (Reuters): More than 4 million have registered to vote in the upcoming presidential election, double the number expected, an official said on Tuesday.
The final phase of voter registration ended last week, with hundreds of thousands of people turning up at district centres to register in four southern provinces.
"I am very happy. Our plan was to register 2 million people and this would have been a success," Zekria Barakzai, deputy chief electoral officer for the Independent Election Commission, said.
Women made up 38 percent of those who registered to vote.
