DILI, 18 february 2022 (TATOLI) – The Technical Secretariat of the Electoral Administration (STAE) starts today, voter registration for the three parallel polling centers installed in Dili, whose term will be extended until march 3rd.

Subsequently, the latter will be responsible for sending it to STAE for registration and identification.

“Patients from municipalities residing in the capital must send the declaration letter to the Ministry of Health, which, in turn, will send it to STAE”, he said.

As for the situation of students also residing in Dili, they must obtain statements from the school board as well as from the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Culture (MESCC).
