Fraud in Afghan elections shows second vote necessary - Davey
"These results cannot be safely seen as a victory for Hamid Karzai," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Foreign Secretary. Commenting on findings of ‘clear and convincing evidence of fraud’ in Afghanistan’s elections, Edward Davey said:
“The increasing evidence of widespread fraud in the Afghan elections means these results cannot be safely seen as a victory for Hamid Karzai.
“There clearly needs to be a second round of voting to ensure the winner genuinely has the support of the Afghan people.
“This should be conducted jointly with the UN to ensure more rigorous and impartial oversight.”
In the UK as well as the world, we live in interesting times. The global economy is in tatters, there is war all over the place and not content with killing and maiming each other, we're also destroying the environment we live in. In the UK we have a failing government and one could go far enough to say a failing political system. There is a lot going on that makes the blood boil. News Rage is a state of angry mind coupled with the actual venting of that anger which manifests itself in the publication of interesting and hopefully entertaining but highly critical articles about something that has been reported in the news within the last 24 hours.
