Election Commission outrage after presidential candidate’s rumor spreads
Reporter: Firdous Rasouli
After the presidential election took place in 34 provinces, some supporters of the candidates announced the victory of the two leading election teams. Initially, Abdullah Abdullah’s supporters announced their victory in the presidential election by posting the primary results on social media, and some of these supporters have already sent congratulatory messages to Mr. Abdullah. But for the government-building team headed by president Ghani, the victory turned into a headache while Shah Hussain Mortazavi voice record was published in social media as he urged all of the president’s supporters to change the social media space against the propaganda of Mr. Abdullah’s supporters.
The IEC also angrily declared that Afghan citizens should wait for the commission’s message, with officials insisting that no message could guarantee the victory of the candidates unless the election officials themselves announced the results. Government security officials are now trying to take over the third phase of security measures for the presidential election and deliver sensitive and non-sensitive election materials to the center of the country.
