World: Some in Afghanistan say the ballot-stuffing was blatant

  • Not a single person in Shorabak District cast a ballot — not a single person. Mr. Karzai’s people stuffed all the ballot boxes.
  • Afghan regional governor Delaga Bariz • Regarding claims of widespread vote-tampering across the country. According to Bariz and others, Hamid Karzai had some of his right-hand men come into the Shorabak region (which Abdullah Abdullah was destined to win), close the 45 local polling places, bring the ballot boxes to the election headquarters and stuff them with thousands of ballots favoring Karzai. Pretty serious allegations. • source
