“Clear and convincing evidence of fraud”

Afghanistan’s Electoral Complaints Commission orders a partial recount of last month’s vote


 

Afghanistan’s Electoral Complaints Commission announced today it has found “clear and convincing evidence of fraud” pertaining to last month’s presidential election and has ordered a partial recount. The commission says that ballot boxes were stuffed with more ballots than should have been available, or the returns were incredibly skewed in favour of one candidate. In incumbent Hamid Karzai’s home province of Kandahar, for example, preliminary results indicated that more than 350,000 votes had been turned in to be counted, but Western officials estimated that only 25,000 actually voted there.

  1. Someone remind me why Canadians are dying to support this regime?

  2. I wish that I could.

  3. This isn't a just conflict if a sham election is supported or recognized by NATO.
