Activity Name: Afghanistan Elections Program(AEP)
Afghanistan has held five national elections since the fall of the Taliban. Unfortunately, each electoral process has revealed significant flaws in the country’s democratic framework. Both the 2010 parliamentary election and 2014 presidential election were marred by widespread fraud and tarnished the legitimacy of Afghanistan’s electoral management institutions. Large numbers of irregularities and resistance to the adjudication process called into question the legitimacy of the elections and reinforced widely held perceptions of corruption and lack of accountability. OFRD has been a leading organization in providing public awareness on elections to the Afghan people since 2012, and OFRD will be observing elections from 2019 at national and international level.
