Deficit electricity is major cause of ID and voting card delays

A confidential report published by the List?n Diario indicates that technical reasons are not the main reason behind delays in the issuing of the new voting and ID cards to citizens. According to the report, Datocentro, the company in charge of the equipment they are using for the process, handed in the equipment needed on 31 August 1998. The main problem affecting the process is the absence of adequate power supply that has resulted in damages to the equipment and delays in the process. The report says there is still time to correct the problems and finish on time.
