Electoral reforms commission to start work soon: CEO
KABUL (Pajhwok): Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah has said electoral reforms commission will start work soon.
He expressed these views in a meeting with Spanish Ambassador to Kabul Jose Rubio on Sunday.
A statement from the CEO office said the government was committed to bring about fundamental reforms in the electoral system of the country.
Abdullah assured all prerequisites for reforms have been finalized and the electoral reforms commission would start work soon. The commission would then present its suggestions to the government in an opportune time.
“The electoral reforms commission will continue its work under the leadership of the CEO office and will not have any connection to the election commissions because the panels have lost their credibility,” the statement added.
The Spanish ambassador assured the European Union commitment to financially support the election process of Afghanistan, but on condition of reforms.
Rubio hoped the elections reforms would take place soon at a specific time, saying his country was committed to stand by Afghanistan for long-term until the country became strong and united, the statement concluded.
