Kabul (BNA) Election is a national process; the people find an opportunity to renew their commitment to democracy and establishing a democratic system, the opportunity should be valued and improved.
BNA political affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes according to election schedule, presidential elections would be held on September 28 of the current year.
Islamic Republic of Afghanistan considering holding election and peacefully transmission of power as a main principle for improving democracy and a need for extension of the rule of law, believe that holding election, strengthens the process of peace negotiations in existence of an elected government.  
But since negotiations between America and Taliban have started under the title of peace negotiation, contradictory words have been heard about presidential elections in Afghanistan. 
A number of people give priority to peace while some others insisting on election consider it necessary for boasting a democratic government.
Mohammad Ashraf Ghani president of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan believes that election is important because according to the law election is a necessary process.  He says, either he be the next president or somebody else should have commitment for peace, because, this process needs severe decisions to be made in order the people be satisfied and just Afghan government has the authority to decide regarding to peace with Taliban.
He has said that he wanted to reach consensus with Taliban in two phases, first, primitive consensus earlier to presidential election and the second phase after the election would be an overall agreement   
The president expressing the above wants to say that an elected government can decide about peace and political future of Afghanistan not a government that would remain just for less than a month.
But a number of countries and foreign diplomats in Kabul prefer peace to election. Among them the Russian ambassador to Kabul in a private TV interview has said that Russia gave priority to peace than election
The US ambassador to Kabul, while visiting Balkh province also expressed a view similar to Russian ambassador.
Talking about peace and election take place in a time, America is involved in negotiation with Taliban who not believe in to election and civic life.  In any peace negotiation, the issues related to freedom and democracy should also be discussed.
In peace negotiation where democracy and rule of law be ignored, such a peace would not be sustainable and respectable.
Afghan people and state while consider peace as a need, but prefer peace with honor where democracy and values achieved so far be protected.
Altimetry, peace runs through the state’s canal and this elected government can decide about political future of the country.
