HERAT CITY (Pajhwok): The Independent Electoral Complaints Commission (IECC) on Sunday said it had cancelled about 100,000 votes cast at 27 polling stations in western Herat province.

IECC Herat chief Abdullah Sherzai told reporters the votes were thrown out in light of investigations into 28 complaints registered in this regard.

He said the invalid votes belonged to presidential candidates and had been cast at polling stations in Herat City and Kushk, Rubat Sangi, Shindand, Farsi, Gulran and Kuhsan districts.

“Most of the votes were fraudulently cast in favour of Dr Abdullah Abdullah, Zamai Rassoul, Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai and Abdul Rab Rassoul Sayyaf,” Sherzai said.
