Establishment of Special Court for Electoral Irregularities

Free and Fair Election Foundation of Afghanistan is seriously concern on establishment of special court for adjudicating of cases of electoral irregularities. FEFA will carefully examine the courts’ conduct. While FEFA support independent and non-politically driven measures to end impunity for crimes committed during elections, but it considers any decision and judicial interferences in electoral process and final announcement of the results a clear breach of electoral law. FEFA once again retreats its position that all electoral irregularities and violations and the certification of the election results is a sole authority and responsibility of electoral institutions and shall remain within their jurisdiction. FEFA calls on president --as the protector of the constitution—to do all in his power to protect constitutional and electoral law framework of the electoral process in resolving the dispute and ambiguity concerning election violations. FEFA also calls on Supreme Court to fully observe and respect electoral laws. Thus, their action should not undermine legal and institutional status of the electoral administrations. During 2010 parliamentary election there have been serious irregularities consequently, Free and Fair Election Foundation of Afghanistan (FEFA) raised frauds, electoral violations and law in breaching actions while observing different phases of election process through its preliminary and final reports sending proofs and evidences to IEC and ECC. Since, starting of election process until the announcement of election final results, FEFA has constantly been observing whole phases of election process expressing its position to public domain within press releases, analysis and interviews.
