Outsiders out to disrupt vote audit: Hotaki

 
KABUL (Pajhwok): The Independent Election Commission (IEC) on Wednesday expressed concerns at outsider elements striving to disrupt the ongoing vote audit.
Abdul Rahman Hotaki, the IEC deputy chairman, told reporter in Kabul the panel was more worried about auditors’ security than the presidential candidates’.
Without naming any particular person or country striving to scuttle the audit process, he said that security organs would protect the ballot.
Election was a national process and it was the duty of all government institutions to play their roles in making it a success, he added.
He said the IEC officials had been ordered to throw out the individuals who were creating hurdles to the audit process.
Security officials were appointed following agreements between the presidential candidates and IEC to ensure protection of the audit.
