Afghanistan’s Independent Election Commission said on Tuesday that the main door of its data center was opened to help two Special Forces of police get warm.
This comes as Abdullah Abdullah’s team has claimed that the data at the digital center were altered in an organized night raid that happened in collusion with President Ashraf Ghani’s team. It specifically said that the raid targeted quarantined biometric devices and urged IEC not to upload data from them.
Speaking at a press conference, IEC chief Hawa Alam Nuristani confirmed that the main door of the data center was opened, but said that sensitive materials were not harmed.
“We are accountable to the people, there should be no confusion in the minds of the people, it was the most transparent election,” said Habib Rahman Nang, head of the IEC secretariat.
