Reporter: Firdous Rasouli
The Taliban have written a newsletter that the election campaign is a pretext for the continued presence of foreign forces and that anyone who participates in the presidential election campaign would be targeted by the group militants. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid wrote in the news release: “The current election is a continuation of efforts to maintain the authority of foreigners as well as a number of politicians’ are playing double standard political games. Because past presidential elections have shown that people’s votes are ignored, but foreigners are empowering people to serve their interests.”
The group has also warned that attacks on presidential candidates’ meetings and gatherings would be a military priority and their main target. According to the Taliban newsletter: “Elections are t fake election process and the Islamic Emirate is working hard to prevent it. Citizens are urged to refrain from participating in the process and not to participate in the election campaign. They will do their utmost to prevent such meetings.”
The allegations come as reports are leaked to the media about the early signing of an agreement between the Taliban and the United States. On the other hand, it is believed that with the signing of this memorandum, opportunities for peace will be increased.
