He called upon the Reforms and Unanimity team to review its decision of boycotting the audit process and talks over the formation of a unity government.
The Reform and Unanimity team, headed by presidential candidate Dr. Abdullah Abdullah, on Monday warned to withdraw from the political process if its demands were not met by Tuesday.

He said their logical demands about the vote audit process had been ignored by the Independent Election Commission and the United Nations.
