Kabul – August 18, 09 (Hamsayeh.Net) - The election in Afghanistan is becoming a battleground between rival candidates to push for a final victory. But it is possible that none of the candidates would have enough votes for a clear win.
In the war ravaged Afghanistan - one of the poorest and less developed countries in the world - choosing the next president is perhaps the most important thing for the people of that nation these days.
On a live television debate in Afghanistan last night two of the candidates took parts but Hamid Karzai's main rival, Abdullah Abdullah didn't show up. In the last night's debate Karzai tout his government's achievements during the past several years in power. His rival Ramazan Bashardoust however attacked Karzai for the widespread corruption of his government.
Due to increasing violence and security risks there is a real possibility that not enough of voters would show up on the election day causing doubts about the legitimacy of the upcoming election.
