Afghanistan’s political crisis is showing no signs of easing as presidential candidate Abdullah Abdullah says the electoral commission has ignored his demands and he will not resume cooperation with them.
Abdullah, who is facing off against Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai, escalated his complaints about the conduct of the June 14 runoff vote Thursday despite pleas from the U.N. and the U.S. to respect the process and wait for official results.
The fraud allegations have marred what Western officials had hoped would be an important step toward democracy for the troubled country as the U.S. and its allies wind down their 13-year combat mission.
Abdullah acknowledges concerns the crisis could further destabilize the country but says the responsibility for that ultimately lies with the Independent Election Commission and its affiliated complaints commission.
