MAZAR-I-SHARIF (PAN): An International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) commander in the northern zone has said Afghan security personnel have the capacity to secure the 2014 elections on their own.
Addressing a news conference in Mazar-i-Sharif on Saturday evening, Maj. Gen. Jörg Vollmer said 2014 would be an important year to the Afghans because they themselves be providing security for the elections.

National Coalition of Afghanistan spokesman Fazal Rahman Orya told a gathering in Mazar-i-Sharif, the capital of northern Balkh province, the biggest hurdle to the elections was the government’s anti-democratic approach to the draft law.
