Noor Warns He Will Not Accept Rigged Elections

Former governor of the northern province of Balkh and CEO of Jamiat-e-Islami party of Afghanistan, Atta Mohammad Noor, says he is ready to join the Taliban if needed to prevent the establishment of a government which comes to power through an unfair and rigged election.
 
In an exclusive interview with TOLOnews, Noor warned of severe consequences if the elections are marred by rigging and fraud. He said that such an election will push the nation towards a new crisis.
 
“If there is no management, then I will address the Europeans and Americans that you imposed rigging on us. If you repeat this, Afghanistan will be pushed directly into a crisis,” Noor said.
 
Noor stated that there is a need for proper management of the upcoming elections to avoid the mess the nation faced during the 2014 presidential polls.
 
“Come what may, we will not accept this fraudulent, tyrant and dictator government, even if it comes through a crisis or war and even through joining the Taliban,” added Atta Noor.
 
Meanwhile, Noor stressed the need for a positive role of Afghanistan’s neighbors in the peace process.
 
“As I said in the past, Pakistan has committed a lot of destruction in Afghanistan. We will not ignore it. I was an anti-Pakistan, but today, I believe that we need to address our issues with Pakistan through dialogue and keeping the interests of both sides,” Noor said.
 
Noor is one of the participants of recent talks between Afghan politicians and the Taliban members in Moscow and his son participated in a recent intra-Afghan dialogue conference in Doha.
