Speaking during a press conference in Kabul, Hekmatyar accused the government for planning vote rigging during the elections and the authorities have no will to hold a transparent election.
He said the government is moving in a wrong direction and the Independent Election Commission has adopted an unfair approach, emphasizing that the commission is offering a irrelevant justification for the embarrassing fraud in the elections.
Hekmatyar went on to claim that the millions of fake National Identity Cards have been dispatched some areas of the country while due to political motives the National Identity Cards and stickers have not been sent in some other parts of the country.
He also claimed that the stickers have been printed with an aim to commit fraud in the elections.
In other parts of his speech, Hekmatyar said nearly 6 million refugees do not have right to vote and 2 million Internally Displaced People have also been barred from the election while 90 per cent of the people have no representatives in the parliament.
The leader of Hezb-e-Islami also claimed intentional deterioration of the security situation in some parts of the country to prevent people from voting.
He warned that the political parties would not accept fraudulent elections and said the advice of the political parties to the government is to refrain from unilateral decisions.
