The leader of Hezb-e Islami and presidential runner Gulbuddin Hekmatyar issued serious warning against fraud and foreign meddling in upcoming presidential elections, scheduled for upcoming Saturday.
Speaking during an election rally in Kabul earlier today, Hekmatyar said he would stand against fraud and foreign meddling in the elections.
Hekmatyar further added ‘Do not make us feel regret about return and going towards elections. Do not force us to adopt other routes, since we can and have its experience.’
Hekmatyar was apparently pointing towards adoption of insurgency in the event he would be disappointed with the democratic process of elections.
A day earlier, Hekmatyar had warned he would return to battlefield in the event the elections were marred with fraud.
The presidential elections are scheduled for upcoming Saturday, the 28t of September.
However, there are concerns that security issues and fraud would likely mar the elections process.
A number of prominent political leaders including the chief executive of Jamiat-e Islami Ata Mohammad Noor appeared in a gathering earlier today, emphasizing that the country is going through a bad situation and that peace process was a priority as compared to elections.
