What country has the most expensive election campaigns in the world? At a first glance the answer may be obvious; in the recent US elections over 2 billion dollars were spent, and combined with the other elections held at that time, the total spending is estimated to over 6 billion.

 
Voters in the eastern province of Nuristan said they see no change in their lives in the past five years.
They say no attention has been paid to their province, but they are participating in the election to bring change in the future.
The mountainous province with seven districts shares a border with Pakistan.
The provincial council of Nuristan has nine seats, three of them for women. The province has three seats in the Wolesi Jirga.
The economy of Nuristan is based on agriculture, forestry and animal husbandry.

JALALABAD (PAN): Fleeing insecurity, Nuristan provincial council members on Tuesday elected their chief and other office bearers in Jalalabad, the capital of eastern Nangarhar province.
However, Nuristan governor Tamim Nuristani called the elections as "illegal", saying he had not been informed prior to the vote .
Inayat Rahman Mazhabyar was re-elected as Nuristan council chief, while Amanullah Inayat Rahman as his deputy.
