AAN’s Thomas Ruttig about the Biometric Voter Verification devices used in the Afghan presidential election:

“The designated staff should be able to operate them sufficiently,” said Thomas Ruttig, codirector of the private Afghanistan Analysts Network in Kabul.

“There have been assurances that the training was done earlier and better than the last election so there should not be any hurdles, but we can only know that on the election day.”
