MEHWAR: Registration of Over 7,000 Complaints
The Independent Electoral Complaints Commission (IECC) registered over 7,000 complaints over the past two days from campaign teams following the announcement of the preliminary election results on Sunday, a member of the electoral body said.
Mainly three campaign teams--State Builder led by Mohammad Ashraf Ghani, Stability and Convergence led by Abdullah Abdullah and Islamic Security and Justice led by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar – have lodged complaints with the IECC offices in Kabul and other provinces.
“There might be some changes in the results. Either it will go up or down if we get between 7,000 to 8,000 complaints,” the deputy head of the IECC, Din Mohammad Azimi, said.
He dismissed rumors that the election will go to a second round after complaints are addressed.
