The Independent Commission of Elections is set up July 7th for holding parliamentary elections in the country, but recently the commission is talking about suspending the process.
Wasema Badghisy the operative deputy of election commission in one of her interviews has talked about three month delay in the process.
Although, three month delay in holding the elections has not yet formally confirmed by the commission, but the statements of that high ranking official of the commission regarding to delay of the elections have caused concern among people, politicians and civil society activists.
In the critical situation of Afghanistan, delay in this national program can increase the distrust of people to the state and identifies the government as an incapable government.
In addition, any suspension and delay of the program could be an achievement for political critics of the state and will make their criticism more serious.
The political experts and the activists of civil society insist that the politician and the authorities of state should not accept their plans and views to the people. The independent commission of elections should manage its activities in a better way and becomes ready for timely holding the elections.
It is require for independent commission of elections to finalize the constituencies of elections and the list of voters and present its technical and logistical problem to the state.
It should be mention that holding elections is the demand of Afghan people and international community and realizing it, is the commitment of the authorities for promoting the process of democracy in the country.  No any other option replaces it and satisfies the people.
