Afghan Taliban strongly react over the re election of the Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani
KABUL - Afghan Taliban strongly react over the re election of the Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani.
Afghan Taliban called the election process as ‘fake and unlawful’. The group in a statement said “Holding elections and announcing oneself a president under occupation shall never remedy the problems of our Muslim Afghan nation just as it has failed to do so over the past nineteen years.”
Calling the re-election of Ghani as ‘unlawful’ and having no legal basis, the group further added that the announcement declaring Ghani as President ‘is also in conflict with the contents of the ongoing peace process while keeping in mind the current sensitive circumstances of the Afghan issue.’
The group also warned that it will continue to its fight until the occupation is brought to an end.
The Independent Election Commission (IEC) announced the final election results late on Tuesday, declaring Ashraf Ghani as the President of Afghanistan.
