Kabul (BNA) Election is a national process, therefore should think about it as a national process and prefer public interests to personal benefits.
BNA political affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is committed for holding a transparent and extensive election and follows and supports it as a national process.
During the recent days, a number of political parties within a framework of a political coalition has commenced a series of efforts to bring some changes in the system of elections and establish a new working mechanism for electoral commissions.
The Afghan government that is committed in building a democratic system in the country and believes in consultation on good governance has did its best to settle the current differences among political parties via negotiation in order to safeguard  the credibility of election and to provide the ground for holding a just and transparent national – wide  elections.
For this reason, the state held five sessions with political parties and elections commissions in order to remove the differences and to reach a consensus on this national process.
However, what the political parties present for holding a country- wide election due strong reasons and logic is not practical.
Since, election is a national process, Afghan government in order to save the process from any harm, conducted five times negotiation with participation of election commissions and political parties. The negotiation releasing a five article statement was ended.
The state honors the views and will of political figures for holding a transparent and national- wide elections. In the second article of the statement has emphasized on observing the independence of election commissions, not changing the date for holding parliamentary election, persistent monitoring political parties and figures from the process of election. Biometric issue has considered as a long time process, the election commission can decide about it.  Changing the system of election as an acute national issue is the duty of national assembly it should be discussed assessed in a mass gathering.
What have been said indicates that the Afghan government is seeking to support the nascent democracy In the country and accepts this that political parties and movements have an effective role in building a democratic society, but in a war torn country like Afghanistan all people should join hand for settling the crisis.
The process of election as a national process should be supported. Supporting the process by individuals, groups or government officials would be not enough; it needs the overall support of politicians and people as a whole. What the people want is holding a transparent election for realizing that everybody is responsible including government, political parties, election commissions and different public strata.
