KABUL -- Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has ordered the country's census department to roll out new electronic national identity cards within the next few days, TOLOnews reported Thursday (December 14).
Homayoun Mohtaat, director-general of the Afghanistan Civil Registration Authority (ACRA), announced the order in a post on Facebook.
"Be prepared for the rollout of electronic national identity cards within the next few days," Mohtaat wrote, quoting Ghani's order.
"Our department will kick off the issuance process of electronic identity cards in line with the direction of the president in the coming week," Mohtaat added.
How likely is it that the Taliban will fracture after the recent ceasefire exposed divisions in the group?
