(BBC) – Results in Afghanistan’s controversial parliamentary elections in September are being announced.

The results were delayed due to a fraud investigation.

During the inquiry, the Independent Election Commission (IEC) scrapped 1.3m votes as invalid – almost a quarter of those cast – because of irregularities.

At the weekend, the Election Complaints Commission (ECC) disqualified 19 candidates for fraud. Seven were incumbent MPs in the 249-seat parliament.

Rallies were held in Kabul and other cities calling for the election commissions to be scrapped over the disqualifications.

On Tuesday, Attorney General Mohammad Eshaq Aloko suspended the electoral commissions’ spokesmen.

Ahmad Zia Rafat, of the IEC, and Noor Muhammad Noor, of the ECC, are accused of making remarks damaging to the Afghan national interest.

The parliamentary vote was seen as a key test for the country, a year after the re-election of Afghan President Hamid Karzai was overshadowed by fraud.

Turnout was around 40% in Afghanistan’s second parliamentary election since the 2001 US-led invasion.
