FREE AND FAIR ELECTION FORUM OF AFGHANISTAN

15 YEARS OF CIVIC SERVICES


FEFA has overseen the upcoming election process from its inception, including election campaigns.

Elections are the foundation of democratic systems. The continuity and integrity of the election entails the continuity and integrity of the system and society and, in contrary, the lack of transparency and the integrity of the election, causes chaos, weak and precarious structures and corruption, and ultimately causes crisis and backwardness in society. Afghanistan has so far experienced six (three presidential elections, three parliamentary, and simultaneously three provincial council elections). Political factors, lack of transparent systems and mechanisms, tailored to society's needs and conditions, poor and ineffective management, insecurity and failure to enforce laws, as the main factors, have turned past elections into bitter and frustrating experiences, besides numerous deficiencies, have created complications and a climate of disbelief and mistrust about the effectiveness of this fundamental principle in society. Now, another crucial election on is ahead on 28 September. Despite widespread efforts to address electoral challenges, some of these efforts have although been both effective and enormous: unfortunately, there are still problems that threaten the integrity of elections in the country. Insecurity, lack of elections inclusiveness, political distrust among candidates, central and provincial management problems, and lack of a comprehensive system for the sound management of technical electoral processes, incompatibility and lack of proper compliance with laws, influence of local power brokers in commission work, the professionalism of the IEC staff, the shortage of female staff in the polling stations, the professional and legal treatment of candidate representatives in polling stations and observance of the principle of non-interference in electoral affairs, superficiality and irresponsibility of the various aspects involved in the election, including challenges, Which threatens future elections.
