By Usman Sharifi (AFP) – 11 hours ago

KABUL — An Afghan special court overturned a string of results Thursday from last year's fraud-hit parliamentary polls, causing deep splits in the political system with US troops poised to start withdrawing.

The head of the tribunal, Sidiquallah Haqiq, read out a list of provinces where results had been recalculated at a press conference in Kabul.

Lawmaker Mohammad Farhad Azimi, deputy secretary to the lower house, said that up to 60 separate results from the 249 seat Wolesi Jirga were affected.

"They have introduced one to two new lawmakers in around 28 to 30 provinces," he told AFP. "This is wrong, it is a political decision."

The court's move threatens to reopen deep splits between President Hamid Karzai and lawmakers opposed to him, potentially seizing up the heart of the political system shortly before foreign troops are due to begin pulling out.

Lawmakers hostile to the special court, set up on Karzai's orders to investigate allegations of widespread fraud at elections in September, accuse the president of trying to use it to boost his support levels in parliament.

The special court says Afghanistan's election commission should disqualify lawmakers whose elections it says are invalid, but as the commission does not recognise the court's legitimacy the future is unclear.

Many lawmakers also reject the court's authority and a row over the issue delayed the inauguration of parliament, raising the spectre of a constitutional crisis when lawmakers threatened to open it without Karzai.

Parliament was finally opened in January in Karzai's presence but the special tribunal continued its investigations.

Lawmakers in parliament on Thursday held an angry debate in which many insisted they would not accept the tribunal's decisions.

"The special court has no legal legitimacy," said Farkhunda Zahra Nadery, a Kabul lawmaker whose vote share was increased by the tribunal but who rejects its legitimacy.

"The members of the lower house parliament are very angry and are unanimous in rejecting this decision."

The debate came just hours after US President Barack Obama announced that 10,000 troops would leave Afghanistan between July and the end of this year, effectively marking the beginning of the end of the US war.

All foreign combat troops are due to leave Afghanistan by the end of 2014, despite concerns from experts over whether Afghan forces and officials will be in a position to take control by then.

Analysts in Afghanistan predict that the complicated saga around the status of the lawmakers could rumble on for some time.

Martine van Bijlert of the Afghanistan Analysts Network wrote this month: "It is a standoff -- one of Afghanistan?s many -- with the main protagonists milling around, watching each other wearily, trying to gauge the others plans, waiting for a chance to strike, while all the while pretending to be minding their own business. And one that could go on for quite a while longer."

Karzai welcomes Afghan drawdown plan as election woes re-emerge
By HASHIM SHUKOOR
McClatchy Newspapers
KABUL, Afghanistan -- Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Thursday endorsed President Barack Obama's plan to withdraw 33,000 American troops from Afghanistan by the middle of next year, though his principal political rival questioned the government's ability to follow through.

"We welcome this announcement and congratulate Afghans for taking control of their soil," Karzai said in a brief statement.

He called the announcement a "good measure" for Afghanistan and the United States. "The withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan shows that Afghan forces have become stronger. People tell me they now have greater confidence in the security forces," Karzai said.

The leader of Afghanistan's opposition coalition, Abdullah Abdullah, also welcomed the drawdown announcement, but he used the opportunity to question the ability of Karzai's government to lead the nation.

"One of the main reasons for past failures is incompetent, ineffective leadership in Afghanistan that missed golden opportunities," Abdullah said. "Our fear and concern is that we might miss other opportunities in the years ahead."

Abdullah challenged Karzai in the 2009 presidential elections, and his barely veiled criticism of the president came the same day that a special tribunal set up in December ruled that 60 lawmakers who'd won seats in Afghanistan's 249-member parliament in September did so by fraud and should be disqualified.

Most of those lawmakers are Karzai opponents, and it wasn't clear who'd replace them.

More than 2,500 candidates sought seats in the Sept. 18 elections, but the allegations of fraud delayed the inauguration of the current parliament until January.

In announcing the tribunal's decision, Chairman Sediqullah Haqiq called for prosecuting election workers and officials who he said had engaged in fraud.

The tribunal's announcement seemed unlikely to end the dispute.

A spokesman for the Independent Election Commission, Tabish Forogh, said that only the election commission could decide whether the elections were fraudulent. The commission already has said the vote was valid.

"One point that I want to make is that the Independent Election Commission still stands firmly on its previous position," Forogh said.


Candidates who'd been declared losers in the election hailed the tribunal's decision.

"We proved to the world that there was fraud in the election and people's votes were stolen," said Moen Marastyal, a candidate from the northern province of Kunduz.

Marastyal said he felt that way even though the tribunal hadn't named him a winner.

Abdullah, who now leads the opposition Hope and Change coalition, denounced the tribunal.

"The creation of the tribunal was illegal, and its decision is illegal, too," Abdullah said.

Some lawmakers threatened street demonstrations if they were removed from office because of the tribunal's ruling.

"Last year's elections were fair," said Fatima Aziz, a lawmaker from Kunduz whose election was declared fraudulent Thursday. "I do not trust the court's finding, and its decision is illegal."

Why is Kharzai still there? He is the mother of cheating and frauds. Btw, thank you dear for the articles. I wonder if Kharzai would win another round, too. The last time he fraud more than 2 mio. votes and in addition he got all votes of Uzbeks, another 2 million votes. Let´s see if he really overwork the current law of allowing everyone beeing only two rounds presidents to a third and four rounds. I even wish that for him because I want to see his dirty face when he lose 70% (non-Pashtuns) to 30%.
