U.N. Says 'not Possible' To Finish Afghan Vote Audit By September 2

by Wochit 1:05 mins

Afghanistan's U.N. representative told President Hamid Karzai on Thursday that the audit of a disputed election would not be finished by Sept. 2, when Karzai had hoped to see a new leader inaugurated. The United Nations is supervising the audit of votes from a run-off ballot between the two candidates, Abdullah Abdullah and Ashraf Ghani. Both men have claimed victory in an election meant to mark the country's first democratic transfer of power. In a meeting with Karzai, U.N. envoy Ján Kubiš told the outgoing president a "rigorous and credible audit required time, but could be completed around 10 September." The audit of votes hit a snag on Wednesday when Abdullah's team pulled its observers from the process, citing dissatisfaction with the way that allegedly fraudulent votes were being handled. Ghani's team subsequently also withdrew its observers at the U.N.'s request.
