Previously, the council indicated as many as 26.476 residents of the district have not been recorded for e-KTP. Robby, the secretary familiarly called, admitted the data was revealed in a working meeting with the Kotabaru Population and Civil Registry Office (Disdukcapil).
On the forum, he continued, the reason was uncovered due to the empty supply of e-KTP blanks in Kotabaru. In addition to the limited printers, of 4 units only 2 can be used.
