Authorities to issue IDs to civil servants in Bago’s elephant camp

LOCAL NEWS

Efforts are being made to issue household registration certificates to civil servants at the Pasonseik Elephant Camp in Bago Yoma Mountain Range by next month, said U Kyaw Kyaw Khine, an immigration officer at the Gyobingauk Township Population and Immigration Department. There are 68 staff-families at the remote elephant camp in the Zeegon timber production area, located in the Yonechaung Village-tract in Gyobingauk Township.
U Kyaw Kyaw Khine said the lack of IDs has caused members of the staff to lose some of their citizenship rights, including the right to vote during elections. Some staff members were not eligible to vote in the previous elections as they did not posses any NRC cards.
Members of the immigration department plan to go on a field trip to the target area in August. As part of its services, a mobile team composed of seven police and members of the Gyobingauk Township Population and Immigration Department visited the area on 20 July to issue household registration certificates. The department issued the certificates to 52 families there.—Zeyatu (Magway)
