Karzai Likely to Admit to Insufficient Vote Result

As was posted earlier, Afghan President Hamid Karzai is facing increased political pressure following the Afghan presidential election. AP has just reported that Karzai may likely admit that he did not breach the 50% electoral result necessary to avoid a runnoff.

The election results and Karzai’s subsequent conduct will have significant consequences for US foreign policy in South Asia, and could potentially have long-lasting effects on US national security interests.
