Mohammad Ibrahim, a voter in the area told Killid news, around 100 people came to this center, but the officials did not let anyone enter.
Meanwhile, in the Requiem Saloon Electoral Center in Khail Khana Mena, observers complained that some officials force people to vote for a particular candidate.
Mohammad Naeem Rasouli, an observer from Mohammad Daud Hashimi’s team claimed that workers in electoral sites enter polling booths with voters and ask them to vote for their preferred candidate.
On the other hand, electoral observers of Da Afghanan Mosque center criticized officials in this center for not permitting electoral observers to observe the process.
Mohammad Akbar Andarabi, an observer from Rahmatullah Sharif Zada’s team, claimed that the head of this center “Obaidullah” is restricting the entry of observers by complaining of lack of space.
