The Independent Election Complaints Commission (IECC) announced on Monday that they are getting ready to announce the final election results by Wednesday.

Qasim Elyasi, a spokesperson for the IECC said in a press conference on Monday that 50% of decisions have been taken and it will take another two days to complete.

“The decisions have been proven in accordance with the law, principles, procedures and in the context of technical issues and are acceptable by the people and electoral teams,” he said.

Informed sources and experts believe the election will have no winner in the first round as the final results are announced.

A source who did not want to be named in the report told Khaama Press that the election will have no winner and the continuation of the National Unity Government (NUG) is a priority now.

The international community and Afghan politicians will pressurize the palace to respect the political agreement signed between the President and CEO based on 50-50 political shares in the government, the source said.

This comes as Abdullah Abdullah is said to introduce high-level government officials including cabinet members and governors in the next few days.

Abdullah has recently criticized Ghani for his new appointments which are said to be in contract to the political agreement they signed back in 2014.

Chief Executive Officer, Abdullah Abdullah signed a decree on Sunday to stop Ghani’s reform agenda for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

According to the NUG political agreement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs belongs to the Chief Executive office.
