Afghanistan - Results of the first round of the Afghan presidential elections (May 15, 2014)
Following the publication by the Independent Electoral Commission of the final results of the first round of the presidential elections, France welcomes this important milestone in the electoral process.
We welcome the holding of the first round of the elections and the contributions of the Independent Electoral Commission, the Electoral Complaint Commission, as well as the civil society organizations involved, in support of a transparent electoral process. We encourage them to continue these efforts in the second round of the elections.
Respect for the institutions and the rejection of any kind of fraud are key to ensuring the election’s legitimacy.
