KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): National Security Advisor (NSA) Hamdullah Mohib on Saturday said the Afghans’ vast participation in the parliamentary elections showed the enemies of democracy they were unable to stop them.

Mohib, after casting his vote in a polling station in Amani High School in Kabul, said the massive turnout was a great achievement for the government and the Afghan nation.

“Despite threats, the Afghans participated en masse in this national process and they showed the enemies of democracy could not create trouble for making their future,” he said.

Mohib said Afghan forces had been deployed in all polling stations across the country and voters could safely exercise their right to enfranchise.

The election process is ongoing in all provinces except Ghazni and Kandahar province (today) October 20.

The Independent Election Commission (IECinfo-icon) said people who could not vote today due some reasons could vote tomorrow (Sunday) in certain polling stations.
