Release of partial results delayed (Video)
KABUL (Pajhwok): The UN secretary-general’s deputy special representative for Afghanistan, Nicholas Haysom, on Saturday announced a delay in the release of partial results from the runoff presidential election.
At a news conference in Kabul, Haysom said the move was aimed to build confidence between the two presidential candidates. One of the runners, Dr. Abdullah, crying foul, earlier said he would not accept the results.
But Haysom said election commission should push ahead with its work transparently and in line with the schedule already announced.
