Transfer of Election Materials Underway
KABUL: The Independent Election Commission (IEC) said on Monday the packing and delivery of sensitive electoral materials to 10 provinces had been completed and the process was proceeding smoothly.
IEC spokesman Noor Mohammad Noor said the commission faced no hurdles to the delivery of sensitive materials. The process is ongoing in an accurate way as authorities avoid past mistakes.
He said more information could not be shared with the media for security reasons. Both presidential contenders have been allowed to introduce 25,000 individuals each as observers.
Noor said the campaign period would kick off in a couple of days and continue until June 11. Each runner is allowed to spend up to 10 million afghanis and submit a report on expenditure to the IEC.
He said the commission reserved the right to take action against the candidate who violated IEC laws in this regard. The run-off election is scheduled between Dr. Abdullah and Dr. Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai for 14 June.
