President Ashraf Ghani approves the recommended package of ERC

President Ashraf Ghani has approved the recommended package of the Electoral Reforms Commission, Shah Sultan Akefi head of the Commission said on Sunday.

“The recommendation of the commission was approved in the cabinet session and the President may issue a decree soon to implement the recommendations,” Akefi emphasized.

Akefi emphasize that electoral institutions must respect the decision of the President and no election must be held if the recommendation are not implemented, but Independent Election Commission (IEC) says the recommendation means to postpone elections for years and to lose all opportunities.

“If we practice the recommendations into action, it means we have lost a lot of opportunities to organize the already postponed elections, and it means we will not have elections for many years,” Noor Mohammad Noor IEC spokesman stated.

These statements come as Afghan President promised to the International Community representatives at the Senior Officials Meeting (SOM) to hold the most transparent elections in Afghanistan by 2019.
