17.2.2020 ||Afghan leaders endorse a ‘parallel government’ concept in case of fraudulent election results
Several prominent political figures endorsed a ‘parallel government’
concept in case the election results are not announced transparent.
General Abdul Rashid Dostum, the First Vice President and a key political
figure for the northern Afghan provinces warned of announcing a ‘parallel
government’ led by Abdullah Abdullah if the election results are not clean
Abdul Rashid Dostum was speaking in Zahiruddin Babur’s memorial ceremony
in Sheberghan of Jawzjan province last week, where he said fraudulent
election results will not be accepted.
“If there is fraud and your votes are ignored and not counted, I will not
accept the election results even if sword and knife are around my neck,”
said General Dostum addressing the people present at the memorial event.
Soon after the statements made by a high ranking government official and a
prominent political figure went viral in the media and several other
politicians endorsed General Dostum’s declarations.
Ahmad Zia Massoud, brother of Ahmad Shah Massoud, the National Hero who
assassinated by the Al-Qaeda terrorists back in 2001, announced his
endorsements from the statements made by General Dostum in reference to a
‘parallel government’ concept if the electoral commissions cannot separate
the fake votes from the real votes.
Islamic Jamiat Party of Afghanistan led by Salahuddin Rabbani, National
Unity Party of Afghanistan led by Sayed Mansoor Naderi and the Islamic
Solidarity Party of Afghanistan led by Haji Mohammad Mohaqeq published
press releases in support to General Abdul Rashid Dostum’s assertions on
the establishment of a ‘parallel government’.
This comes as the final results for the Afghan presidential election held
on September 28, 2019 hast come out yet.
The preliminary election results announced by the IEC on the 22nd December
2019 sparked mix reactions among the public members and Afghan elites as
the election commission did not provide clear answers on the 300,000
controversial votes, Abdullah’s electoral team claimed these votes were
The Independent Election Complaints Commission (IECC) was also not able to
decide about the 300,000 controversial votes. A special committee has been
called to assess the votes that are under dispute.
According to a report by Salam Watandar, there are serious issues and
disagreements between the IEC and IECC. A member of the IECC has accused
Habib Al Rahman Nang, the head of the secretariat at IEC, for distortion
of their decisions.
Mawlawi Din Mohammad Azimi, a member of the IECC claimed that Habib Al
Rahman Nang has distorted one of their decision about assessing the ballot
papers in certain election sites.
According to Azimi, the IECC declared to assess the ballot papers based on
the verification of the QR codes, but Habib Al Rahman Nang at IEC has
changed and falsified the decision text to ‘assessing the ballot papers
based on the presence of QR codes on the ballot papers’.
The IEC has not yet officially commented in reference to the recent claims
by the IECC.
