Election 'Imposed' on Afghans Serves Foreigners: Karzai

Afghanistan’s former president Hamid Karzai on Wednesday said that he had already informed the Afghan people that the current circumstances in the country weren’t suitable to ensure credibility and transparency of the elections and that the election process was "imposed" on the Afghan people.

“The process that was imposed on our people under the name of 'elections' was not a national process and was in contrast to the values of democracy,” said Karzai in a statement on Wednesday, as the political crisis intensifies following Tuesday's announcement by the Independent Election Commission declaring Ashraf Ghani the next president.

According to Karzai, the election process fundamentally serves foreign agendas in Afghanistan, which are aimed at weakening Afghanistan’s national sovereignty and creating division among the Afghan people so that foreigners can implement their plans.

“Given the overall situation in the country, particularly what has happened over the past five months, especially after the announcement of the results, it is natural that the results declared are not accepted,” said the statement.
