The Electoral Complaints Commission says the candidates should remove their posters from different areas of Kabul and provinces
The Electoral Complaints Commission says the candidates should remove their posters from different areas of Kabul and provinces until the official date of campaign arrive. The commission will react against them legally.
Expressing concerns over breaking the law, some Kabul residents say that the candidates who have already started campaigns before the arrival of official campaign date are violating the law.
Kabul residents blame IEC for not doing anything against this obvious violation of law. According to them, IEC should have taken serious actions against this matter.
Responding to such claims, Fahim Hakim a member of the Electoral Complaints Commission says that all those candidates who posted their election posters in different parts of Kabul have received official warning to collect the posters back.
Hakim adds that a number of candidates showed ignorance about the issue and said that their images were posted by their rivals in different parts of the country.
According to Hakim, they sent official letters to those candidates whose posters are in the city to collect them before the declaration of final decision of IEC about the candidates. “In case they don’t do it, they will face with electoral bans mentioned in the elections law,” Hakim warned.
June 16 to August 17 are the official elections campaign days announced by the Independent Elections Commission.
