Afghan officials to announce 99 pcnt of vote count

In World on September 13, 2009 at 3:17 am

Afghan electoral authorities said Saturday they would announce up to 99 percent of votes counted in the country’s fraud-tainted presidential polls.


Afghans voted on August 20 in their second presidential election, marred by low turnout and allegations of widespread fraud.


“We will announce around 99 percent today,” said Noor Mohammad Noor, spokesman for the Independent Election Commission (IEC).


One percent is not processed, it has not been entered into the system,” he said.


The IEC had hoped to announced preliminary results in early September, but its timetable has been pushed back by the need to investigate allegations of ballot-stuffing and for some votes to be recounted.








An Afghan walks in front of a billboard with a photo of President Hamid Karzai in Kabul.

The winner, who needs 50 percent of the total vote plus one vote, will not be officially declared until all irregularities are resolved.


The final results had been scheduled for September 17, but with the IEC warning that up to 500,000 ballots could be quarantined and investigated, the process could yet drag on for some weeks.


The UN-backed Electoral Complaints Commission (ECC) has already ordered thousands of votes thrown out from 83 polling stations in three provinces, but there is no timescale for investigations in the rest of the country.


With ballots from more than 91 percent of polling stations already counted, incumbent Hamid Karzai leads, with about 54 percent. His main challenger Abdullah Abdullah has less that 30 percent.

ASEAN chief announce postponement of 14th ASEAN Summit

In Uncategorized on December 4, 2008 at 2:27 pm

Hanoi (VNA) – The Association of Southeast Asian Nations’ Secretariat announced on December 3 the postponement of the 14th ASEAN Summit.

The announcement was made after Thailand has said it will postpone the 14th ASEAN Summit to a date to be fixed later after consultations with ASEAN member states.

“This was not an easy decision to make and I thank Thailand for weighing carefully all the factors before deciding to postpone the Summit. I appreciate very much the consideration Thailand has given to the ASEAN member states’ concerns,” ASEAN Secretary-General Surin Pitsuwan said.

He added: “The postponement of the Summit should not distract us or detract from what we in ASEAN are doing for the well-being, livelihood and welfare of the peoples in this region.”

“I will be exploring ways and means of minimising the adverse impact on the works of ASEAN. Some initiatives and projects in the pipeline by certain ministerial bodies will be given due consideration to proceed without having to wait for the Summit. In this connection, I am looking forward to consulting with ASEAN Foreign Ministers in the coming days,” he said.-

Malaysia to announce new fuel price

In Uncategorized on August 21, 2008 at 1:46 pm

Kuala Lumpur (VNA) – The Malaysian government will announce the new fuel prices on Aug 31, which will take effect on September 1, local media reported.

The new price would be based on the average fuel prices throughout the month of August and after deducting the 30-sen subsidy per litre, Malaysia’s Bernama news agency cited Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi as saying on August 20.

However, it was still too early to predict how far the prices of petrol and diesel could be lowered, the PM said.

If the current downward trend continued, the price of fuel at the pump would definitely be lower than the prevailing rate, he added.

The Malaysian government increased the price of petrol to 2.70 RM (0.81 USD) per litre and diesel to 2.58 RM (0.77 USD) per litre in June, according to Bernama. –
