PC votes from 600 sites to be recounted

KABUL (Pajhwok): The Independent Election Commission (IEC) on Sunday said provincial council (PC) election results from results from 23 provinces have been entered into the database and ballots from 600 sites would be recounted.
The vote-counting process continued uninterrupted, Noor Mohammad Noor, the IEC spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News. The final results would be announced on scheduled, he said.
He said results from 23 provinces had been fed into the IEC database, with the counting process progressing satisfactorily. Votes from 600 polling sites will be recounted. 
IEC officials, suspecting fraud, decided to recount votes from 600 polling sites and segregate genuine and fraudulent votes.
Noor said the IEC would announce preliminary results of provincial council polls in mid-May. The commission is yet to decide on the fate of votes from 444 presidential polling sites.
