Mohaqiq Accuses ARG and CSO of Pre-Election Rigging

KABUL – Mohammad Mohaqiq, the Second Vice President of the Afghanistan’s Chief Executive, accused the Central Statistics Organization (CSO) of pre-election rigging in collusion with the Presidential Palace.
Recently, the Independent Election Commission (IEC) sent a list of 9.5 million of voters to CSO for identification of ghost voters through a scrutiny of national identity cards.
However, the process has arisen concerns among the electoral candidates.
Mohaqiq says that classification of voters into ‘real’ and ‘fake’ through their national identity cards, in the absence of the presidential candidates’ representatives and electoral observers, will create a big problem in the upcoming election.
“This is a pre-election rigging. They [ARG and CSO] want to void the identity cards of those people whom they think would not vote to them,” said Mohaqiq.
He further stressed that in such a condition the result of the election will not be acceptable.
At the same time, a number of other presidential candidates are also concerned about the checking of the national identity cards in absence of their representatives.
“The Central Statistics Organization was behind the issue of fake identity cards in the 2018 parliamentary election. The Central Statistics Organization is directly under the control of ARG and the strategies of this organization are to predesign the election in favor of the current team in the government,” said Faramarz Tamana, a presidential candidate.
The CSO denied making any comments on this issue.
