KABUL (Pajhwok): Sensitive electoral materials have successfully transferred to 23 provinces, Independent Election Commission (IEC) said on Wednesday.
The commission, however, expressed fear that insecurity in some provinces could threaten the upcoming presidential election.
Acting IEC spokesman, Zabihullah Sadat told Pajhwok Afghan News sensitive electoral materials had been transferred to Herat, Farah, Badghis, Zabul, Nimroz, Helmand, Uruzgan, Kandahar, Baghlan, Kuduz, Balkh, Faryab, Jawzjan, Sar-i-Pul, Samangan, Takhar, Badakhshan, Paktika, Bamyan, Ghor, Daikundi, MaidanWardak and Ghazni provinces.
He added similar items were being packed and dispatched to Paktia and Khost provinces and the materials would be reached there today (Wednesday).
He assured the materials would be transferred to the rest of provinces within the next two days.
He called the electoral materials delivery successful and said the process was underway normally and there were no major problems in this regard so far.
Referring to insecurity, Sadat said insecurity was a major threat to the Sept. 28 presidential poll.
“Unfortunately, security forces are fighting with Taliban militants in some provinces currently and we are worried about this situation as sensitive and non-sensitive materials should reach provinces in time,” he said.
As many as 17 candidates are in the run for the presidential election
