Adriano Miguel Tejada and Mario Rivadulla visited the Registrar offices located at Doctor Delgado St. corner of 27 de Febrero Av., where supervisor Rosa Martínez explained the process in that district, and revised 300 books of a total of 3,979.
Tejada, who is also the editor in chief of newspaper Diario Libre, said the process is going well and will continue full time, with visits to various offices nationwide.
