Ballots boxes from 3 Kunar sites audited
ASADABAD (Pajhwok): The Independent Electoral Complaints Commission (IECC) on Saturday announced quarantining ballot boxes from three polling centres in the Nari district of eastern Kunar province.
These ballot boxes contained votes cast for presidential candidates in the April 5 polls, IECC Kunar chief Murtaza Habibyar told Pajhwok Afghan News.
The suspect votes were investigated and separated from real ones on the basis of complaints registered in this regard. He said some ballot papers had not been stamped and others wrongly folded.
He said representatives of presidential candidates, observer missions and Free and Fair Election Foundation of Afghanistan (FEFA) officials had been invited to monitor the assessment.
