A student in one of private institutions Ms. Fereshta said in the connection that holding timely election is hopeful for Afghans.
But, what is a matter of concern for people and government is the security issue, because, now, there is no security in some provinces. How we would be hopeful for a transparent and just election in those regions?
In first step, the government should maintain security for election, an election that would be in accord with the demand of all people and they should cast their votes in boxes freely.
This is in a time that because of insecurity in a number of provinces, the previous election was faced with some challenges.
The upcoming elections of Afghanistan that would be held in next spring simultaneous with pullout of foreign forces from Afghanistan.
But, if the government be no serious in this respect, it is possible that upcoming elections would also to be faced with continued challenges and skirmishes.
