UK urges Afghan electoral commissions to act impartially
The UK urges the Independent Election Commission (IEC) and
the Independent Electoral Complaint Commission (IECC) to fulfill their
responsibilities impartially, efficiently and transparently, the UK embassy in
Afghanistan said in a tweet posted today, September 29.
“All candidates and their supporters should refrain from
premature claims of victory or unsubstantiated allegations of fraud,” the
embassy noted on a following tweet.
Initial reports suggest that the turnout in the fourth
presidential polls was very low while around nine millions Afghans had
previously registered to vote in the polls.
