JALALABAD (PANinfo-icon): A Free and Fair Election Foundation of Afghanistaninfo-icon (FEFA) representative in eastern Nangarhar province on Wednesday accused the Independent Election Commission (IECinfo-icon) of non-cooperation.

The IEC provincial office did not provide the election watchdog accurate information, he alleged, saying most of their requests were answered after inordinate delays.

Ijaz Malgarai, the FEFA official, urged the poll panel to give them the numbers of voting cards issues so far, their serial numbers and other related information to help ensure transparency in the elections.

Malgarai, told Pajhwok Afghan News: “I have officially asked the IEC for information several times, but its provincial staff said classified documents could not be shared with the media.”

If the commission continued to conceal information, people would have reason to suspect attempts fraud in the elections, he said argued. Pajhwok tried to contact IEC’s provincial officials, but in vain.
