Dr. Abdullah Abdullah’s Press Conference Two Days after the Election

“The head of the IEC’s secretariat should be suspended from his job”

Dr. Abdullah Abdullah the front-runner and potential winner of the presidential election condemned the large-scale fraud committed during Election Day and warned that he will defend the rights of the people of this country.

Additionally, he condemned the terrorist and devilish acts of the enemies of Afghanistan for killing people and chopping many of the index fingers of those who voted.

Dr. Abdullah stated that Zia-ul Haq Amarkhel, the head of IEC’s secretariat, is the symbol of those committing fraud and he demanded his suspension as soon as possible.

He told the reporters that the IEC’s position that a misunderstanding happened between Kabul’s Police Chief and Amarkhel is unacceptable and stressed that neither the interior minister nor the IEC was at the scene and that until an unbiased investigation happens, Amarkhel should be suspended from his job.

Dr. Abdullah said that the IEC’s claim that more than 7 million people participated and voted on Saturday was unjustifiable and irrational because no evidence is present and it is very clear for everyone that participation was very low during this round of the presidential election. He mentioned that President Karzai was aware of all this and repeatedly he told Karzai about the conditions favorable for fraud in many parts of the country and even in the commission but he ignored us and did not take any measures to prevent it from happening.

Dr. Abdullah at the end, once again told the people of Afghanistan that he will defend their right at any cost and will not allow any criminal or traitor play with their fate with their trickeries. The large-scale fraud in Paktia, Khost, Paktika, and Kunar province should be investigated and the fraudulent ballots should be invalidated if they do not want a crisis to come about because of this.
