Last Night's Negotiations Between the Leaders of the Reform and Partnership Team, the US Embassy, and the UN

Negotiations between the leaders of the Reform and Partnership team, the US Embassy, and the UN has taken place in order to include the views and considerations of our team in the UN's proposition package. These negotiations happened in two separate meetings last night, first with the special representative of the US for Afghanistan and Pakistan and then with the representative of the UN. Additionally, John Kerry spoke with Dr. Abdullah Abdullah by telephone.

Until the negotiations regarding the content and substance of the invalidation measures are not finalized, the Reform and Partnership team's observers will not participate in the audit.

It is expected that the audit process will be delayed till tomorrow in order to reach an agreement over this issue.

For this reason, we propose an increase in the measures and standards of this audit and we have five proposals in order for this process to become successful and to achieve its goal of saving the election from fraud.
