Nearly 1,900 fraud complaints in Afghan election

KABUL, Afghanistan — An Afghan official says nearly 1,900 complaints of fraud in this month’s presidential election are being investigated but the number is lower than that of the last election.

The spokesman of the complaints committee of the Independent Elections Commission, Mohammed Nadir Mohseni, said today that each allegation would be scrutinized so that there would be no question of the outcome of the April 5 vote.

Partial results from the vote-counting are being released later today, with full preliminary results due April 24.

With eight candidates running, it is likely no one will get a majority and a runoff will be held in late May.

Mohseni said a total 1,892 complaints were filed, of which 880 might affect results. He said the vote had fewer complaints than the tainted 2009 elections.
