Karzai Rules Out Sharing Power

Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai and his main election opponent Abdullah Abdullah have ruled out the possibility of a power sharing agreement. Karzai’s campaign insists that the only way to solve the current election crisis is to hold a second round of voting to establish a governement. Abdullah says that he and his supporters do not have faith in Karzai to end corruption and extremism.

Abdullah has expressed concern about the impartiality of the Independent Election Commission. He asserts that members of that commission are the main individuals responsible for fraud. President Karzai has claimed that he will agree to whatever is necessary to make the second round more transparent and responsive.
