Afghan election in peril over Abdullah Abdullah’s fraud claims

KABUL (TIP): Afghan presidential election candidate Abdullah Abdullah on June 18 demanded a halt to votecounting over fraud allegations, taking the country to the brink of a political crisis during its first democratic transfer of power.

Abdullah ramped up his complaints over alleged fraud in Saturday’s run-off election by accusing his opponent Ashraf Ghani, outgoing President Hamid Karzai and the Independent Election Commission (IEC) of all being involved. A smooth election was seen as a key test of the 13-year international military and civilian effort to develop Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban regime in 2001.
