UN, Western Donors Call on Afghan Candidates to Respect Votes Recount
In a statement, the Election Support Group – comprised of key international donors including the United States, the European Union, NATO and the UN – said that candidates should respect election law and “refrain from any actions or statements that undermine the process.”

“The ESG urges all candidates to cooperate with the recount and audit process and follow the formal complaints process to raise their concerns about the alleged irregularities,” the statement said.
The call came one day after the Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah said he would not accept “fraudulent votes” results and demanded a halt in the recount of votes from the September 28 first-round ballot.
