Postponement of Parliamentary Elections

Considering the importance of adhering to the constitution about date of Wolesi Jirga election, FEFA expresses its concern regarding the announcement of Independent Election Commission (IEC) to postpone Wolesi Jirga election. But since the purpose of holding elections is to establish elected and democratic institutions, it is, therefore, necessary to make the most of the remaining period to bring required reform and pave the ground for transparent, free and fair elections. The postponement of the elections provides the IEC, security institutions and donor countries with an opportunity to better reform the administration of election and ensure better security environment. FEFA is also hopeful that all entities involved in the process, including IEC, Observer organizations, press, security institutions, voters and potential candidates would, by learning from the lessons learnt of elections held on August 20, 2009 and using the opportunity rendered available as a result of the postponement play their role in conducting transparent, free and fair elections.
