Certain embassies trying to influence the elections: Hekmatyar

The leader of Hizb-e-Islami party led by Gulbudin Hekmatyar has claimed that some circles within the government and certain embassies are trying to influence the election.

According to Pajhwok, quoting a statement from the party that Hekmatyar leads, he claimed some circles within the government and certain embassies are trying to influence the upcoming elections.

In a meeting with tribal leaders, religious scholars and jihadi commanders from the Qarabagh district of Kabul, he urged the people to actively participate in the voter registration process.

Stressing the need for fair and free elections, he accused some circles within the government and certain embassies of trying to harm the parliamentary elections.

Without naming any foreign embassy, he said certain circles were in a bid to fuel ethnic tensions and prolong the conflict in the country and thereby manipulate the electoral outcome.

Hekmatyar told his interlocutors the foreigners did not want to see a credible Afghan parliament, a strong central government, political parties and unity among the Afghans.

The HIA leader said: “Our campaign against corruption continues. We support all movements against corruption and impede things that harm the national interests, Afghan values or denigrate Islam.”

He emphasized on transparent elections, hoping the Afghans — if they showed spine — could prevent defeat the enemy. He urged the people to prepare for elections, receive ID cards and register as voters.
