Abdullah Abdullah's Stability and Convergence campaign team on Friday reported that Abdullah has held meetings with some of the country’s prominent political figures and they discussed issues related to the election results and the prospects for the establishment of a "reconciliation government" in the country.
According to the CE’s office, Abdullah met former Afghan President Hamid Karzai, the leader of Hizb-e-Islami party Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, Mohammad Mohaqiq, the leader of Hizb-e-Wahdat-e-Islami and Mohammad Karim Khalili, the head of the High Peace Council (HPC).
Meanwhile, Fazel Hadi Wazeen, deputy leader of the Hekmatyar-led Peace and Islamic Justice campaign team, warned that the peace process in the country could be in jeopardy if the election dispute is not settled.
“This result (election result) is based on fraud, it is based on violating the provisions of the election law and the constitution of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and it contradicts electoral procedures,” said Wazeen.
According to the sources, during the meeting discussions were also held on the structure of the government’s new cabinet.
“The people of Afghanistan, by voting in the elections, declared their support for the republic system and the Constitution,” said Latif Mahmoud, deputy spokesman to President Ashraf Ghani.
