Poll complaints reviewed in eastern zone
JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Independent Electoral Complaints Commission (IECC) officials on Thursday said the review of complaints in eastern Nangarhar and Laghman provinces had been completed.
IECC chief for Nangarhar, Dr Abdul Wadood Afghan, said that they had registered 88 complaints about the April 5 presidential elections. Only three of them were shared with the main office; the rest were addressed by the regional office.
“Some of the complaints received were found invalid. In such cases, complainants were warned for making baseless claims,” the official added.
The review process was not final and the IECC main office may bring changes to the final outcome.
IECC chief for Laghman province, Mohammad Aimal Haqmal, said 64 complaints were registered, including 21 category A objections.
Haqmal said category A complaints had been reviewed and shared with the IECC main office. Category B complaints are still being investigated.
He added most of the complaints were registered against provincial council candidates. Objections against presidential candidates reviewed first.
