Kabul (BNA) Investigating the complaints and implementing the law on warlords and wrong doers increases the trust of people to democracy.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes one of the basic principles of democracy is elections. Discussion on elections and realizing democracy in the country requires long and sufficient time, but all agree that the infant democracy in the country getting to maturity. However discussion on holding elections is difficult but contrary to it all agree that holding elections without facing problems even in the most developed countries of the world would not be available but what makes this challenging and difficult process in Afghanistan trustworthy to people is the investigations of complaints have sent to the address of election commissions by people, monitors, candidates and relevant organs of elections.
In spite of security threats the people with great zeal and enthusiasm attended the polling centers, waited for a long time, endured irregularities but voted for their favorite candidates in this way they demonstrated their strong will for ensuring national interest and empowering of the lower house of parliament.
Therefore, considering the problems the people sustained during the voting if they report about shortages, fraud, violations and buying and selling of the ballots and illegally filling the ballot boxes should be honestly investigated.
Because, the people voted in the elections, reported their eyewitnesses about irregularities, fraud to elections commissions to be verified. Therefore if the relevant organs honestly and transparently investigate the complaints, the organs will emerge as public trustworthy sources, otherwise the gap between the people and those organs become wider and they will lose their trust among the people. 
Honesty in obtaining public trust guarantees the future of democracy in the country otherwise people’s trust to democracy will harm.

Therefore the enemies of Afghanistan and their foreign patrons should know that the Afghan people have chosen their way, threat, intimidation, violence and imposed wars cannot become and obstacle against the will and demands of people.
The political wisdom and wisely reasoning suggest that the best way for achieving political objectives is participation of oppositions in the election and in peace process. The people who consider themselves Afghans and are in opposite front should desist, killing of people, destruction and looting their properties, otherwise the people say no to them once as they said in parliamentary elections. Learning from the previous experience the opposition should make no mournful the parents of our homeland.
