Kabul (BNA) Peaceful demonstration and civic activities is the right of every citizens, but launching protests and civic activities must not be the main aims for opportunistic.
BNA analyst writes that some electoral teams by accusing Afghanistan Independent Election Commission (IEC) to fraud and support from an electoral team have launched demonstration on Friday.
Now, supporters of some electoral teams have prevented recount of votes in Takhar, Badakhshan, Baghlan, Jawzjan, Sar-e-Pul, Faryab and Panjshir provinces. The electoral teams claimed that Independent Election Commission about 10212 votes out of times have presented technical problems, according to the electoral teams this is not legal and the votes must be annulled.
Also, the commission technical details about 137630 votes is not clear and before starting recount the two cases must log out from the system, but Independent Election Commission did not it.
Consecutive delays in election results has prolonged the announcement of the election results; on the other side has bored people, this is a fact that delay in election results have put negative impact on people’s lives, business, economic, trade and social affairs, while delaying in presidential election results is not the benefits of election and half strap democracy in the country, so far election commissions didn’t manage the process well and caused concerns among people.
Afghanistan Independent Election Commission have worked with coordination of electoral teams and answered their protests based on laws.
Now, it is better that Independent Election Commission work together with electoral commission for solving the problems, this is possible only via negotiations.
While, security situation is not better in the country, some electoral teams particularly solidarity and partnership electoral team has launched demonstration yesterday in Kabul city, but fortunately the demonstration has ended peacefully and without any security problems.
People believe that launching demonstrations, closing provincial election commission’s offices and people disturbing is not the solution. These ways can make the situation more critical and will be repeated the past bitter experiences.
Electoral teams must carried out their programs based on laws and implemented without harassing people.
Doors open for negotiations, election process has faced with technical problems that can be solved, the process should not become more critical and should not having inappropriate behavior to democratic values and sacrifice the half strap democracy in the country.
Our people are facing with dozens problems that main challenges is economic poverty that most of people are facing across the country, this is not necessary for our politicians and electoral teams to increase people’s problems.
