UN brokers talks between IEC, Abdullah
Coming hours after IEC Secretary Ziaul Haq Amarkhel’s resignation, the UN-facilitated meeting allowed for an exchange of views. All IEC commissioners, Dr. Abdullah and his electoral advisors were in attendance.
In a statement, the UN Mission said it had been encouraging the candidates to fully engage in the electoral process and cooperate with each other, as well as with the electoral institutions as they undertook their mandated roles.
“UNAMA will continue to support the electoral process that remains fully in the hands of Afghan institutions and stakeholders and remains their sole responsibility,” the statement added.
