IECC: Complaints against Amarkhel null & void (Video)
KABUL (Pajhwok): The Independent Electoral Complaints Commission (IECC) on Tuesday said all allegations against Independent Election Commission (IEC) Secretary Ziaul Haq Amarkhel stood null and void after his resignation.
Amarkhel announced his resignation on Monday, meeting a key demand of presidential candidate Abdullah Abdullah, who had accused him of fraud in favour of his rival Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai.
Amarkhel told reporters in Kabul that he denied any involvement in fraud but was stepping down in the national interest. His resignation has raised hopes for an end to a political standoff that has forced the IEC to delay releasing partial results from the June 14 runoff vote.
