KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Independent Election Commission (IECinfo-icon) on Saturday extended the voting time by an hour in presidential and provincial council elections.

Originally, the voting was to begin at 7:00 am and close at 4:00 pm.

IEC Director Ahmad Yousuf Nuristani told journalists the voting time had to be extended because voting started late at some polling stations.

Dr, Abdullah, Ashraf Ghani, Zalmai Rassoul, Qutbuddin Hilal, Abdul Rab Rassoul Sayyaf, Hidayat Amin Arsala, Gul Agha Sherzai and Sultan Daudzoy are in the run for the presidency.

About 2,600 individuals are contesting provincial council elections. The poll panel has issued 21 million voter cards.
