John Kerry and Ashraf GhaniUnconfirmed reports suggest that the US Secretary of State John Kerry has suggested change in Dr. Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai’s team in a bid to end the election crisis.

The suggestions were reportedly made during the last day of Kerry’s meeting with the presidential candidates.

  1. Abdullah had already proposed this to Ghani, but Ghani did not accept. There is a winner and there is a loser in this process. Ghani is the winner, and he has no reason good enough with him to include other people demanded by Abdullah.

  2. I guess it is fantastic idea.

  3. Why doesn’t anyone use their brain? How can a group of people produce 2.3 or 2.4 milllion votes in 24 hours??? Does anyone know how much man power this requires? In addition to a 24 hour operation? 

    Most Afghans know that all presidential candidates cheated in one way, shape or form. Also why is it that Abdullah Abdullah always has a problem when he loses? I hope he does not run in the future.
