FILIPINO VOTER REGISTRATION IN GERMANY SHIFTS TO HIGH GEAR WITH THE CONDUCT OF THE AKYAT-BARKO PROGRAM

The Philippine Embassy in Berlin has so far registered a total of 222 Filipino seafarers in the first ever “Akyat-Barko” program for 2015, arranged in cooperation with AIDA Cruises, the most recognized brand in the German market for sea voyages.

The Human Resources (HR) Management of AIDA Cruises agreed to have the Philippine Embassy set up mobile voter registration centers on board four of their cruise ships as they disembark on pre-identified German ports.

Philippine Ambassador to Germany Melita Sta-Maria Thomeczek led a Philippine Embassy Team in holding a mobile voter registration area onboard the AIDA Mar as it docked at the Port of Rostock on September 5, 2015.  Fifty-two Filipino seafarers successfully registered for the overseas voting, as the Embassy learned that many of the Filipino crew have already registered when their ship docked in Lisbon, Portugal.
