"Most of the runny noses out

Presidential
candidate breaks
pledge to Kerry
KABUL, Afghanistan(AP) -
Afghan presidential candidate
Abdullah Abdullah said Mon-
day that he will not accept the
expected official results of the
election, breaking a pledge he
made to the U.S. secretary of
state and injecting new tension
into an already drawn-out polit-
ical process.
Appearing tired and ner-
vous, Abdullah told a nationally
televised news conference that
he believes he won both times
Afghans voted this year - in
April and again in a June runoff.
He accused election authorities
of violating the desires of voters
by ignoring widespread fraud
and preparing to declare his
opponent, former Finance Min-
ister Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai,
the winner.
"We were the winners of the
election," said Abdullah. "We
are the winners of the election
based on the real vote of the
people."
Abdullah's announcement
effectively pre-empts the coun-
try's election commission,
which is expected to announce
the second-round results later
this week following a weekslong
audit process to weed out the
many fraudulent ballots cast.
The winner would succeed the
outgoing president, Hamid Kar-
zai.
Abdullah and Ghani
Ahmadzai had both pledged to
Secretary of State John Kerry
during a July visit to the country
to abide by the audit's results.
The two also agreed to plans to
form a government of national
unity with participation of the
losing side.
That second agreement also
remains in peril. The two candi-
dates met face-to-face on Mon-
day, but Abdullah said the talks
are deadlocked over how pow-
erful to make a newly created

position of government chief
executive.
Kerry made a second visit to
Afghanistan in August in a bid
to keep the peace. The two can-
didates then pledged to set an
inauguration before the end of
that month, a date which sailed
by without a hint of finality to
the now five-month-long elec-
tion process.
In Washington, U.S. State
Department spokeswoman Jen
Psaki said that Kerry had spo-
ken with both candidates on
Monday.
"In our view, the audit pro-
cess is still ongoing,"' Psaki
said. "Under the supervision of
the United Nations, I think it
was confirmed that part of the
process had been completed.
There's more that needs to be
done. Dr. Abdullah has indi-
cated consistently that he will
abide by the constitution, and so
we're continuing to work with
the candidates to determine
how we can resolve this moving
forward."
Abdullah's latest statement
came one day before Afghans cel-
ebrate anationalholidaytohonor
a former militia commander,
Ahmad Shah Massoud, a hero
in the country's north, Abdul-
lah's power base. Massoud was
killed two days before the Sept.
11, 2001, attacks in the U.S., and
Abdullah asked the country for
calm on Tuesday and told sup-
porters not to mix their emotions
over the election and Massoud.
A spokesman for Abdullahhad
said over the weekend that "radi-
cals" in his camp could foment
violence if he is not given a share
of power.
On Monday, former Afghan
defense minister Abdul Rahim
Wardak said he believes violence
could break out.
"I think there is the possibil-
ity," Wardak said in an interview.
"There are some countries that
want that. Both to our east and
west," he said, in apparent refer-
ences to neighbors Pakistan and
Iran.
The U.S. has continued to

press Abdullah and Ghani
Ahmadzai to form a national
unity government, and President
Barack Obama spoke with both
on Saturday. Though Abdullah
said the political process has
reached a deadlock, he did not
say he was pulling out of talks or
that the idea of a national unity
government was dead.
Kabir Ranjbar, a member of
Ghani Ahmadzai's election team,
essentially blamed Abdullah for
being a poor loser and said he
should accept the outcome of
the vote given that the audit was
aided and observed by the U.N.
and the international commu-
nity.
Abdullah - who placed sec-
ond in Afghanistan's 2009 vote
after what he alleged was mas-
sive vote fraud in favor of Karzai
- did not say what he planned to
do next. He said he would make a
decision "based on consultations
withthe people."
Afghan election officials
under international supervision
have finished recounting more
than 8 million ballots cast in the
June 14 runoff after preliminary
results showed GhaniAhmadzai
well ahead of Abdullah.
Both candidates had teams of
observers watching the recount
until Abdullah - who believed
his complaints of fraud were
not being listened to - pulled
his observers. At the request of
the U.N., Ghani Ahmadzai then
did the same.
The international community
had hoped for a smooth transi-
tion of power as most foreign
forces withdraw by the end of
the year. The U.S. wants the next
Afghan president to quickly sign
a security agreement to allow
some 10,000 troops to remain
to assist with counterterrorism
operations and training Afghan
forces.
Karzai, the only president
Afghanistan has known since
the 2001 U.S.-led invasion that
ousted the Taliban, has refused
to sign the accord. Both candi-
dates have said they would sign
it; one must be sworn in first.
