2 election officials suspended

Feb 20, 2011 - 18:51

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Two election officials have been suspended for creating hurdles in the way of a special tribunal investigating parliamentary poll fraud cases, prosecutors said on Sunday.

Abdullah Ahmadzai, head of the Independent Election Commission Secretariat, and Qazi Sulaiman Hamid, a member of the panel, had been placed on suspension, a spokesman for the Attorney General's Office, Amanullah Iman, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The two were trying to hamper implementation of decisions by the special election tribunal, he said, adding that a formal letter had been sent to the election commission in this regard.

Calls seeking comments from the commission officials were not answered.
