Kabul Korrespondence

Fresh, factual, and funky view of Afghanistan and the surrounding Central Asian region

Don't believe the Hype!

Saturday, September 05, 2009

Whether you believe that this was democratic, fair election or not, the numbers are being churned out. And as a media outlet, we are 'responsible' to feed them to you.

Bon Appetite:

Karzai: 48.6 per cent
Abdullah: 30.1 per cent

Officials have already annulled up to 200,000 votes from 447 polling stations - about 0.2 peer cent of the total number of polling stations - because of accusations of ballot stuffing.


In other news:
Afghans are once again buying weapons in the fear that protests could erupt.
AK47 Kalashnikov prices have risen 40 per cent from 13,000 Afghanis ($US 260) to 18,000 Afs ($US 360)
