KABUL, June 19 (Xinhua) -- Afghan presidential candidate Abdullah Abdullah on Thursday termed the performances of the election commissions as illegal, saying the commissions' decisions will be unacceptable.
"Since we have doubt over the impartiality of the election commission and demanded the suspension of the job of Ziaul Haq Omarkhil, the chief of election commission secretariat, but our demand has been ignored and that is why today I am announcing that the performances and the decisions of the election commission won' t be acceptable for us," Abdullah said at a press conference here.
However, he warned that "fraudulent elections will take the country towards crisis and in this case the president and the election commissions would be responsible."
Abdullah who secured 45 percent of some 7 million votes in the first round of April 5 presidential elections against his rival Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai, who obtained 31.6 percent of votes in the race, in a similar press conference on Wednesday urged the election commission to immediately stop vote counting.
The election commission, however, overlooked the demand and continued tallying on Thursday.
Abdullah also said that the international community which has been supporting Afghanistan and financed the election process has to take a responsible stance with the election process.
Nevertheless, Abdullah said, "I am hopeful that the country won 't go towards crisis."
