Kabul (BNA) Afghanistan’s Independent Election Commission (IEC) on Sunday said after consultation with stakeholders it had decided to recommend four key proposals for inclusion in a draft electoral law.
A statement from the IEC secretariat said a working group had come up with suggested amendments to the draft.
“The suggestions include structural and procedural changes focusing on four main areas.”
They include the IEC authority as envisioned in the constitution, technical and operational changes to improve electoral administration, changes in the system and establishment of a legal mechanism to adjudicate on complaints and challenges.
Before finalizing the proposals, IEC consulted various electoral stakeholders, including political parties, observer organizations, civil society, academic, scientific institutions and relevant agencies.
Besides, a one day regional consultation session was held in Kabul, Balkh, Kunduz, Bamyan, Nangarhar and Paktia provinces.
The commission will forward the proposals to the ministry of justices for further action.
