No Complaints Against Presidential Candidates: ECC

According to Electoral Complaints Commission (ECC) spokesman Nader Mohseni, no complaints have been officially registered against any of the eleven Presidential candidates, who began their campaigns a week ago.

"When it is proven that activities during the campaigns are intentional violations, in that case, there are specific fines for each of the violations," Mohseni explained.

But concerns over unregistered assets and bank accounts of some of the Presidential candidates are still unresolved. The Independent Election Commission (IEC) has called attention to the issue of financial transparency this election season, pressuring candidates to disclose their resources.

Yet, according to Mohseni, no complaints have officially been filed.

"So far, no complaints have been registered by the Independent Election Commission against any specific candidate," he said.

The United Nation Special Representative for Afghanistan on Saturday said that the upcoming elections cannot be expected to be flawless.

The ECC responded to those comments by acknowledging the challenges facing the elections, but emphasizing that the  transparency of the elections should not be questioned.
