Afghan election in crisis as candidate pulls out of audit

Afghan presidential candidate Abdullah Abdullah speaks at a rally in Kabul on July 8, 2014Afghanistan’s fraud-hit election teetered on the brink of collapse Wednesday as one of the two candidates boycotted the UN-supervised vote audit set up to end a prolonged dispute over the rightful winner. Abdullah Abdullah, who claims that massive fraud was committed against him in the June 14 vote, pulled out of the audit after his senior campaign officials dismissed the process for invalidating fake votes as “a joke”. The stand-off between Abdullah and his poll rival Ashraf Ghani has threatened to revive ethnic violence in Afghanistan as US-led NATO troops withdraw after 13-years of fighting the Taliban insurgents. “We will not join the process today, and maybe we will not re-join the process at all,” Fazel Aqa Hussain Sancharaki, a spokesman for the Abdullah campaign, told AFP.
