One is in Persian which is updated frequently and the other is in Persian (Cyrillic). Additionally, the English page is still running and has a vast amount of information on Tajiks and Persians.

Fraud casts doubt over Afghan election
But outside a polling station in the west of the city, a voter was one of many able to wash the ink from his finger
By Quentin Sommerville

It was not the most auspicious start. Twenty minutes past the 0700 (0230 GMT) opening time, and the polling station in eastern Kabul still had not opened.








BBC News, Sep. 18, 2010: The indelible ink on voters' fingers was intended to stop people voting more than once. But outside a polling station in the west of the city, a voter was one of many able to wash the ink from his finger. "They are not checking people's fingers properly. I could wash it off with water - it's very poor quality. Why are they cheating the nation with this fraud?" he said.But then the small line of voters were allowed in, each was searched and their voting card inspected; Afghanistan's parliamentary elections were under way.

They are not checking people's fingers properly. I could wash it off with water - it's very poor quality. Why are they cheating the nation with this fraud?”

In the last election, five years ago, hundreds had queued outside city polling stations.

But this time, turnout appeared to be lower; that was especially true in Afghanistan's volatile southern province.

As voters left the polling stations, some showed off the indelible ink on their fingers.

Blue, black and purple, it was intended to stop people voting more than once.

But outside a polling station in the west of the city, a voter was one of many able to wash the ink from his finger.

"They are not checking people's fingers properly. I could wash it off with water - it's very poor quality. Why are they cheating the nation with this fraud?" he said.

An election monitor at the site said the ink had been changed.

"The problem with the blue ink is that it can be washed off, so we complained, and the ink was changed to black, which couldn't be removed."

In fact, the Free and Fair Election Foundation of Afghanistan said people were able to wash the ink off their fingers in 2,950 polling stations across the country.

In Logar province, one man said that some had voted many times.

"Some people in our neighbourhood voted several times: they managed to clean their fingers and used fake voting cards to vote again and again," he told the BBC.

But ink was not the only problem. Fake voting cards were discovered in a number of provinces, sometimes in their thousands.

And there have been allegations that election officials have been accepting bribes.

At the polling station in eastern Kabul, police spent some of their time chasing away campaign supporters who arrived in cars covered in campaign posters, despite a ban on active campaigning.

Long wait

Kabul has been covered in election posters for weeks.

It is evidence of the record number of candidates standing, some 2,500 for 249 seats.

There are more women standing than ever before and more young people.

Despite its problems, it has been a vibrant campaign.

Armed police were present at Kabul polling stations.

Overnight, the Taliban signalled their opposition to the vote by firing a single rocket into the city.

There were widespread reports of violence across the country, and many deaths, but the Taliban and other insurgents failed to derail the vote.

Irregularities were expected in this election.

President Karzai's government and his international partners need it to be a success - proof that life here is improving.

But the full extent of fraud will not be known until later.

The remoteness of some polling stations mean donkeys have been used to ferry ballot boxes to and from the sites.

And votes will be counted by hand, so the results are not expected to the end of October at the earliest, and even then will subject to appeal by the candidates.

کمیسیون شکایات انتخاباتی افغانستان گفته است که "حلقاتی از درون دولت" بر نهادهای انتخاباتی فشار وارد می کنند تا مسیر اصلی انتخابات پارلمانی این کشور را تغییر دهند.

احمد ضیا رفعت، عضو و سخنگوی کمیسیون شکایات انتخاباتی به خبرنگاران گفته است که این محافل دولتی تلاش دارند تا شماری از نامزدهای مورد نظر آنها وارد مجلس نمایندگان شوند.

سخنگوی کمیسیون شکایات انتخاباتی از فرد و اداره خاصی نام نبرد، اما گفت که از طریق رسانه ها به این گروه ها پیام می دهد که دست از "مداخله" در امور انتخابات بردارند.

آقای رفعت هشدار داد: "چنین گروه های فشار پشت هر سازمان دولتی هم که پنها باشند و به هر بهانه ای خواسته باشند که در کار کمیسیون انتخابات دخالت کنند – زیر نامهای گوناگون، از تفتیش گرفته تا چه و چه- هیچ محلی برای شان برجای نخواهیم گذاشت که بتوانند در نتیجه فشار مسیر واقعی انتخابات را عوض کنند."

آقای رفعت افزود: "چون در مرحله حساسی از رسیدگی به شکایت ها قرار داریم، به مصلحت ملی کشور نمی دانیم که در این مورد بیشتر سخن بگوییم."

این نخستین بار است که یک مقام یک نهاد انتخاباتی در افغانستان به این صراحت در باره تلاش "گروههای فشار دولتی" برای تغییر نتایج انتخابات در این کشور سخن می گوید.

در گذشته منتقدان نهادهای انتخاباتی مقامهای این نهادها را متهم به سکوت در مورد تلاش برخی گروه های فشار کرده اند.

پیش از این حامد کرزی، رئیس جمهوری افغانستان، گفته بود که انتخابات در برخی از ولایت ها، از جمله در غزنی، منجر به تامین وحدت ملی نشده است و نهادهای انتخاباتی باید کاری در این زمینه انجام دهند.

به گفته ناظران، اشاره آقای کرزی در این اظهارات به موفقیت نامزدهای مربوط به یک قوم در این ولایت بوده است.

این اظهارات آقای کرزی در محافل سیاسی و رسانه ای افغانستان بازتاب گسترده ای داشت و آنها این سخنان او را "مداخله" در امور نهادهای انتخاباتی کشور تلقی کردند.


چنین گروه های فشار پشت هر سازمان دولتی هم که پنها باشند و به هر بهانه ای خواسته باشند که در کار کمیسیون انتخابات دخالت کنند – زیر نامهای گوناگون، از تفتیش گرفته تا چه و چه- هیچ محلی برای شان برجای نخواهیم گذاشت که بتوانند در نتیجه فشار مسیر واقعی انتخابات را عوض کنند

همچنین در تازه ترین مورد، شماری از رسانه های افغانستان گزارش کرده اند که شماری از مقامهای ارشد دولتی، از جمله رئیس دفتر آقای کرزی بر کمیسیون انتخابات فشار وارد کرده اند که از ورود سه نامزد مخالف دولت به مجلس جلوگیری کند.

این رسانه ها گزارش کرده اند که موضوع حذف نامهای احمد بهزاد، نامزد برنده هرات و عضو کنونی مجلس، لطیف پدرام، نامزد پیروز در ولایت بدخشان و محی الدین مهدی نامزد موفق ولایت بغلان در جلسه ای با حضور رئیس کمیسیون انتخابات در ریاست جمهوری مطرح شده است.

برخی از رسانه های افغانستان از یک قول یک مقام کمیسیون انتخابات گزارش کرده اند که فضل احمد معنوی، رئیس این کمیسیون با این خواست به شدت مخالفت کرده است.

اما احمد ضیا رفعت گفت که شخص حامد کرزی، رئیس جمهوری تلاشی برای مداخله در امور انتخابات ندارد.

از سوی دیگر دو روز پیش دادستانی کل در نامه ای به کمیسیون انتخابات هشدار داد که اگر زمینه دسترسی دادستانی به پرونده هایی با موضوع تقلب انتخاباتی در این کمیسیون را فراهم نکند، موضوع تعلیق وظایف مدیران ارشد این کمیسیون را بررسی خواهد کرد.

اما مقامهای کمیسیون انتخابات چنین هشداری را "مداخله" در کار خود تلقی کرده اند. با این حال، به زودی مشخص خواهد شد که این درخواست دادستانی تحقق خواهد یافت یا نه.

آقای رفعت در بخشی از سخنان خود گفت که تا حال به ۹۰ درصد از شکایت های انتخاباتی رسیدگی شده است و به زودی روند رسیدگی به بقیه شکایت ها هم به پایان خواهد رسید.
