Everywhere I go in Dhaka the thinking and writing around id cards and voter lists assumes that it will all take a hell of a long time. This being the case, we are gradually accepting that this interim government/caretaker government is going to be around for many months. Perhaps a year or more. Why? If we can immunise millions of people so successfully in such a short space of time, and involve volunteers, teachers and doctors and other layers of citizens in the process, why not apply a similar model to voter list creation? Surely then we are done and dusted in weeks?
