Afghan official says presidential poll results delayed again

Afghan official says results of country’s presidential election once again delayed, almost 2 months after vote

Spokesman for the Independent Election Commission Zabi Sadat didn’t explain the new postponement. The results were supposed to be announced on Thursday in Kabul.

There was no new date for the results.

Abdullah last week said he was withdrawing his election observers from the ballot counting process. Sadat, the commission spokesman, said vote recounts were immediately suspended after Abdullah withdrew his observers.

Sadat also said the commission is holding emergency meetings to find a way out of the impasse.
