UN to Help Afghanistan Hold Transparent Election

The upcoming Afghanistan Elections are important to UN and International Community, Jeffery D. Feltman, United Nations Under—Secretary General for Political Affairs, noted in an activities evaluation trip to Mazar-e-Sharif in northern Afghanistan.

Mr. Feltman highlighted the UN's supporting and advising role in the upcoming Afghan elections and assured that they will try to perform the task successfully.

“The elections are an entirely Afghan process. Afghans will be deciding who their next president is. We are showing support by providing technical support and advice on how to make sure the election meets the expectations of the people of Afghanistan,” Feltman stated.

Meanwhile, Atta Muhammad Noor, the Governor of Balkh, stresses the negative consequences of holding the elections late.

“If conditions become critical and elections are not held, I believe that the achievements of the past 12 years will be questioned. What we have achieved under the name of democracy, freedom of speech, respect to people's will, and government accountability to people will all be lost,” said Noor.

Mr. Noor believes that besides ensuring the transparency of the elections, security of voting centers and the active participation of candidates observers in voting centers are necessary.
