MAZAR-I-SHARIF (PAN): Senior officials from northern and northeastern provinces on Wednesday held a meeting behind closed doors in Balkh province to discuss security for next year’s elections.
Journalists were barred from covering the meeting that took place at the governor’s house in Mazar-i-Sharif, the provincial capital.

MAZAR-I-SHARIF (PAN): Election officials said on Monday they had registered 66 individuals, including nine women, as candidates for provincial council elections, slated for April 2014, in the five provinces in the northern zone.
They said many people had obtained information kits on provincial polls in Balkh, Samangan, Jawzjan and Faryab. But only a few of them had officially registered themselves as candidates.

KABUL (PAN): Two leading civil society groups on Monday said their concerns about upcoming elections had increased due to lack of transparent and effective guidelines and the presence of biased commission members.
In a joint statement, Afghan Anti-Corruption Network (AACN) and Anti-Corruption Watch Organization said the nation was witness to fraudulent presidential and provincial council elections last time.

MAZAR-I-SHARIF (PAN): The United States is not backing any particular candidate for next year’s presidential election in Afghanistan, an American civilian representative said on Tuesday.
Peter Kastner, the US civilian representative in northern Afghanistan, was speaking to reporters in Mazar-i-Sharif, the capital of northern Balkh province, at the conclusion of a three-day seminar.
