KABUL: The Independent Election Commission (IEC) Chief Gula Jan Abdul Badi Sayad reacted at the protesters move to close the door of the election office in Kabul.

Speaking during a press conference in Kabul, Sayad said the citizens of the country have the right to protest but they do not have the right to create barriers and hurdles in the work of the election commission.

Sayyad further added that the closure of the IEC office by the protesters is not accepable and such a move would delay the election commission’s work and upcoming elections.

He also added that the candidates, whose names have been removed from the list and are objecting the decision, should follow the issue through legal ways and with the Independent Electoral complaints Commission.

This comes as the election commission officials had earlier said the supporters of Mawlavi Tara Khel have closed the door of the Independent Election Commission.

The Independent Electoral Complaints Commission on Saturday announced the names of 35 people have been removed the list of the candidates after reviewing complaints filed against them.
