President Karzai, Qanuni cast ballots from Pajhwok Afghan News.

KABUL (Pajhwok): As millions of Afghans went to the polls, President Hamid Karzai and his deputy Yunus Qanuni on Saturday exercised their voting right.

Amid tight security arrangements, they voted at a polling station set up at the Amani High School in Kabul at about 8am.

Ineligible to run for a third term, Karzai urged the people to brave security threats and rain, participate in the national process and vote for a candidate of their choices.

Qanuni said today was a historic day for the Afghans, who should stream to polling sites to determine the country's future direction.

Defence Minister Bismillah Mohammadi, who voted at the same polling station, said Afghan forces had put in place stringent security measures across the country.
