IECC set to submit report on complaints
KABUL (Pajhwok): The Independent Electoral Complaints Commission (IECC) on Sunday said it would be submitting its findings regarding electoral complaints by Monday to the Independent Election Commission (IEC).
IECC spokesman Nadir Mohseni told reporters in Kabul they considered transparency one of the watchdog’s main principles. “Efforts are underway to finalise our findings into the complaints and submit them to the IEC by tomorrow.”
Over the past two days, he said, they had been looking into documents produced by candidates, a process still ongoing.
He hoped the process would be complete until Monday and the ECC would be able to submit its final outcome to the election commission by that day, but a final decision in this regard had been taken as yet.
Under the election law, the IECC had to submit its findings to the IEC on May 8. But Mohseni said the delay was to ensure that justice had been done.
He said the too many documents needed enough time to be assessed in a transparent and neutral manner. If needed, he said, they would spend even more time in order to ensure justice, transparency and supremacy of law.
In response to a question, he said all decisions could not be taken in public and in front of the media.
The election law seeks the final election results from the IEC after the IECC finalises its assessments into complaints.
