Military Service: 133,820 People Filled Census Forms, Interior Minister

Following the census operation related to the military service, which took place from April 9 to June 7, 2019, the interior minister announced that a total of 133,820 people have filled the census forms, including 13,614 young women (10.17%) who did it voluntarily.

Regional committees will hold meetings, starting Monday, June 17, 2019, in each prefecture, province and district prefecture to finalize the lists of people who took the census within the said period and who are likely to be summoned to perform the military service, said the minister in a statement.

The central committee, faced with the strong adherence by youth to the census operation, will hold a meeting before the end of June to set specific criteria, in respect of the principle of equality among citizens and of balance among regions, to compose the group of those summoned for military service for the year 2019, the same source added.
