What country has the most expensive election campaigns in the world? At a first glance the answer may be obvious; in the recent US elections over 2 billion dollars were spent, and combined with the other elections held at that time, the total spending is estimated to over 6 billion.

 
JALALABAD: Dwellers of the earthquake-hit Sherzad district of the eastern Nangarhar province said they were participating in the upcoming presidential polls despite the fact that pledges made with them were not fulfilled by the government.
They believe that in using their right to vote, they would be able to elect a president who could pay attention to bringing a positive change in their lives.

Although people in different districts of Nangarhar have their own demands from the future president, a few common problems emerge. Those included eradication of unemployment, security and end to administrative corruption.
The province, with 22 districts and a major border with Pakistan, has 19 members in the provincial council and 13 representatives in the Wolesi Jirga or Lower House of Parliament. The report below is based on comments of 10 people from five districts and the provincial capital of Jalalabad about their demands from the new president for Afghanistan.

Mir Wais Yasini is the son of Maulvi Abdul Sattar.

He was born in 1963 in Tahir village of Kama district of Nangarhar province.

He migrated to Pakistan after the invasion of Russian troops and got admission in the Islamabad International University.

He got his master degree in Sharia and Political Science from the same university.

He joined the Afghan Red Crescent Society as its head in Nangarhar in 2002 and then worked as director of foreign relations and economic affairs with the Ministry of Finance.
