4 campaigners of a candidate killed in Paktia

GARDEZ (Pajhwok): Provincial council members from central Logar and southeastern Paktia provinces on Friday said they had stepped up efforts to resolve the deadlock over the presidential poll results. 
During a meeting in Gardez, the capital of Paktia, provincial council heads from the two provinces underlined the need for a political solution to the crisis.
Dr. Abdul Wali, head of the Logar provincial council, said they had been in contact with their colleagues across the country. A grand meeting would be held in Kabul soon to find a way out of the standoff.

KABUL (Pajhwok): The youth from Loya Paktia --- a region comprising southeastern Paktia, Khost and Paktika provinces --- on Thursday rejected claims that the June 14 presidential runoff vote had been rigged in the three provinces.
They told a press conference in Kabul that they strongly condemned the allegations raised by members of presidential candidate Dr. Abdullah Abdullah’s campaign.
Abdullah’s campaign members claim massive rigging had taken place in Khost, Paktia and Paktika provinces in favour of his rival candidate Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai.
