AVA- The elections were originally supposed to be held on July 20, according to local media.
IEC Chairperson Hawa Alam Nuristani outlined the new amendments to the election law and "some other issues" as the reasons behind the delay.
Despite announcing the new date for the Presidential elections, Nuristani cautioned that the elections would be possible on the new date only if all stakeholders - including the international community - provide the budget to the election commission.
Apart from the Presidential elections, the provincial council elections, district council elections, and Ghazni parliamentary elections will also be held on September 28, Nuristani said.
She also labelled last year's October 20 parliamentary elections as the “the worst elections in the last 15 years”.
