CE Abdullah addressing a gathering on women partnership in upcoming elections

KABUL: During a gathering on women partnership in parliamentary and districts councils’ elections, Chief Executive Dr. Abdullah Abdullah said the Independent Election Commission (IEC) should take lesson from the last elections’ bad experiences, Bakhtar News Agency (BNA) reported on Saturday.
CE Abdullah stressed that IEC should remain an inheritance from itself to bolster democracy in the country, according to BNA.
He added we have learned much from the last elections, but still some people are proud of that. That is why IEC’s responsibility is really difficult and heavy, Dr. Abdullah went on to say.
He said despite all challenges and threats, the people of Afghanistan welcomed the elections and registered themselves to vote, the agency added.
We hope the election is held as it is the right of people, CE Abdullah said, adding if we all decide to commit frauds, IEC wouldn’t be able to do anything, but if we make effort to succeed the elections, we would succeed.
He added the ongoing fight is between two groups—a group believes in elections and peoples’ votes and the other one is the enemy of elections, thus, the enemies would avail the opportunity if the elections’ problems persist.
Pointing at districts councils’ position, CE Abdullah said districts’ councils have completed a basis of the system that guarantees the system’s legitimacy base.
Stressing on IEC’s independency, CE Abdullah said the government would never interfere the commission’s affairs, but it is expected by holding transparent and fair elections, the democracy’s morale to be bolstered among the people.
He asked the IEC to make effort and provide the ground for women’s better partnership in elections. The Kabul Times
