A delegation of high officials from United Arab Emirates was on a 3-day study visit from May 19th through May the 21st in Estonia. The delegation, that is responsible for organizing elections in Arab Emirates, was headed by the Undersecretary of the Ministry of State For Federal National Council Affairs, H.E. Tariq Helal Lootah.
The Emirates would like to switch to Internet-based voting- until now electronic voting has been carried through using a machine that is equipped with a touch-screen and which enables identification of persons with inserting an ID-card and entering a PIN-code.
During the study visit the main objective was to learn from the Estonian ID-card solution as well as from the X- road possibilities of submitting enquiries and receiving data.
