The Independent Election Commission (IEC) said on Saturday that government is yet to make any decision on parliamentary elections in Ghazni province despite that the commission informed the administration a month ago that the polls could not be held in Ghazni due to certain reasons including security.
IEC spokesman Hafizullah Hashemi said following the election problems in Ghazni, they decided to suspend elections in the province. He said government has held a primary meeting over the issue and has not made any improvement in this respect.
Governor Hayatullah Hayat of Nangarhar has rejected claims of interfering in Pakistani consulate activities in Jalalabad City, saying that he has addressed visa applicants’ problems outside the diplomatic embassy.
“In the light of national and international laws, we have the right to take action for people’s safety and removing corruption in outer premises of the consulate. We will not interfere in the consulate’s internal affairs,” Hayat said.
