KABUL: The United Nation’s Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) on Monday stressed the need for timely presidential election, calling the Independent Election Commission (IEC) the only a decision-making body.
In a series of tweets, UNAMA head Tadamachi Yamamoto said: “Critically important that credible Afghanistan presidential election take place on time this year. Everyone should play their role to ensure Afghans can exercise their constitutional right to vote without delays.”
With September presidential vote only four months away, he said there was need for realism and urgent focus among all actors in Afghan election process.
“The IEC is an independent decision-making body running Afghan elections.
The IEC decides on how many elections to hold.
The UN provides technical guidance to it and respects its decisions.”
