IEC: Initial election results likely within 2 days

IEC: Initial election results likely within 2 days

Dec 10, 2019 - 17:46

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Independent Election Commission (IECinfo-icon) on Tuesday said the initial results of the presidential election from 27 provinces were likely to be announced within next two days after a revision.

The presidential election was held on September 28. Earlier the IEC had given October 19 the date for announcement of preliminary result while November 7 for announcement of final result of the presidential election.

But due to some technical issues and problems during separation of clean and fraudulent votes, the IEC could not announce the result on its due date.

On October 27, the IEC said primary result of the presidential election would be announced on November 14, but the commission again delayed it for an indefinite time.

The IEC audited and recounted votes of a number of polling stations belonging to 27 out of total 34 provinces of the country. However, a number of presidential tickets including Stability and Partnership led by Dr. Abdullah Abdullah boycotted the process.

Zabihullah Sadat, IEC spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News that latest information of the 27 provinces had been shared with the IEC secretariat but the IEC leadership had reservations over two points.

He said, “If the secretariat solves the two points today, the IEC will declare the preliminary result by tomorrow and if they solve it by tomorrow, then the initial result will be announced within 12 hours after tomorrow.”
