Officials Urge Afghan Candidates to Await Voter Fraud Investigation - 2004-10-10


International observers and Afghan officials have called on candidates in Afghanistan's first presidential election to be patient and give them time to investigate possible voter fraud.

A joint Afghan-United Nations commission is looking into a wide array of charges. Some candidates opposed to interim President Hamid Karzai say people voted more than once and that polls in opposition areas were closed early. They are calling for the entire vote to be nullified.

But other contenders are now saying they will respect the findings of the commission.

Vote counting was expected to begin Monday, but final results are not expected until the end of the month. Millions of Afghans voted Saturday despite threats by Taleban remnants to disrupt the poll.

Information for this report is provided by AFP, AP and Reuters.
