KABUL: First Vice President General Dustom has urged the country’s political parties to set aside political bickering and forge a solution to the deadlock besetting the elections which failed to produce an outright winner but was plagued by allegations of fraud and other ballot scandals.
Dustom made the remarks on Tuesday in a press conference in Jawzjan province with the visiting National Security Advisor Hamdullah Mohib who both also elaborated on their plans to beef up security in the north zone.
Gen. Dustom said he had discussed with Mohib about the controversy surrounding the elections and exploring a political solution to it.
NSA Mohib has embarked on a tour and a series of consultations with security officials in the north zone to see through a proposed plan for a huge security offensive there. He has met with security officials in Balkh province earlier on Monday.
Dustom’s calls for political solution to election gridlock came a day after his running mate chief executive Dr. Abdullah Abdullah sought a meticulous adjudication of election-related complaints from the election commissions.
