KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Federation of Afghanistaninfo-icon Civil Societyinfo-icon (FACS) on Wednesday asked the government and other stakeholders to refrain from attempts at manipulating the outcome of the April 5 elections.

FACS chief Sadiq Mansoor Ansari told reporters in Kabul the presidential and provincial council elections had been a success, which should be protected from being influenced by powerful elements.

He demanded stepped-up investigations into allegations of electoral fraud and legal action against those involved.

He urged President Karzai and the Independent Election Commission (IECinfo-icon) to let the presidential election go to a second round if the situation demanded so.
