Peace Dependent on Fair Elections: Hekmatyar

Peace Dependent  on Fair Elections: Hekmatyar

KABUL - The reconciled leader of Hizb-e-Islami, Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, on Monday, said that his party will not remain silent over what he described the monopoly of the peace process and the elections by certain players.
He said that peace is interconnected with transparent elections in the country.
He also warned foreigners against an attempt to meddle in Afghanistan’s elections and the peace process and said that such moves will be deemed as an act of insult to the president of the country.
“Foreigners have taken the elections hostage so that a powerful government is not created in Afghanistan,” added Hekmatyar.
“There is no clear and independent address for peace in Afghanistan, an address which will decide on peace independently,” he said.
According to Hekmatyar, efforts are underway to "weaken" political parties and disrupt unity among the people. He added that Afghanistan needs inclusive parties if "we want to strengthen democracy". (Tolo news)
