Watchdog confirms receiving audit outcome
KABUL: The Independent Electoral Complaints Commission (IECC) on Monday announced receiving results of the UN-supervised nationwide audit of ballots cast in the runoff polls.
On Sunday, the Independent Election Commission (IEC) announced completion of the vote audit process and said the results would be shared soon with the electoral watchdog.
Results of 405 suspect ballot boxes were reexamined for technical reasons. As many as 2,200 complaints have been registered by the Abdullah-led Reform and Unanimity group. Of them, 1,683 have been found legitimate.
Ashraf Ghani’s Change and Continuity team has filed 729 objections, with 242 declared valid.
Abdul Sattar Sadat, the IECC chief, wrote on his Facebook page: “The results reached my table today. The IEC has given us details of invalidated ballots.”
The watchdog would not keep the nation in suspense, he said, implying the complaints would be addressed swiftly. He gave assurances that political and legal issues would not be mixed.
“We will announce our decision very soon. Agreements or disagreements between the candidates will not impinge on the legality or credibility of the elections,” Sadat further remarked. (Pajhwok)
