Afghan election officials to expel 9 legislators
Kabul: Afghan election officials say nine parliamentarians will be removed from their posts because of election fraud allegations.
Election commission chairman Fazel Ahmad Manawi says the decision comes after the election commission reviewed court findings that 62 parliamentarians should be expelled because of fraud that skewed the results.
Manawi said on Sunday two of those who will lose their seats are from Herat province. The others represent Paktika, Badakhshan, Baghland, Samangan, Helmand and Zabul.
The Afghan parliament has been in limbo for months because of the electoral fraud charges.
