Naeem Asghari, program manager for Free and Fair Election Forum of Afghanistan (FEFA) said that if the Independent Election Commission (IEC) does not hire more females for the female polling sites it would be better off for those sites to be closed.Mr. Asghari explains that during the first round of elections widespread fraud took place at voting sites specifically for women where men would go in and vote in place of the females.
“How is possible for a polling site to have 300 ballots casted by women when the IEC failed to find five female employees work at the site? This is not justifiable,” Asghari said. “The IEC must employ females for this runoff; otherwise, the female sites must be closed.” See full post¬†HERE.
