US Ambassador Alice Wells said on Wednesday that the United States supports the Independent Election Commission’s policy of counting only biometric votes.
She also confirmed with Afghan media that both President Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Abdullah pledged to respect the independence of the Election Commission in its tallying of votes and eventual announcement of a winner.
