The National Civil Registry is pushing for Lae’s Biometric registration to start.
Representatives’ met with Lae’s 23 Ward councilors today to push for the implementation of the new system.
Registrar General, Dickson Kiragi, says it will be the platform from which the National Identity Card will be rolled out in 2015.
The national registry department plans to use information from the district’s biometric system to issue citizen identification cards.
The Biometric system and the citizen card aims to keep identification records of population movement to safeguard foreign investment.
“To establish who are the beneficiaries… there is a lot of resource development”, says Kiragi.
The system was launched about three months ago, aimed to curb the influx of people into Lae, after social problems like school fights and ethnic clashes increased. The pressure was on the Lae District to ensure foreign investment confidence.
But, while some will benefit from the system.
Kiragi said the identification card will protect individuals with some degree of protection.
Whilst, the majority will be pushed out by the new system introduced into our society to provide legal and social protection.
