Abrar Hussain: The Afghan election authorities have announced yesterday that their long-delayed parliamentary and district-level elections will be held this year, as they confirmed October 20 as the date of the vote.With his credibility at question with both Afghans and the international community, President Ashraf Ghani has vowed to hold the elections before presidential elections next year. Already three years late, the elections have been repeatedly postponed. The recent postponed was when the July date announced last year was pushed back due to political disputes. “Today the Independent Election Commission officially announces to the people of Afghanistan that the election will be held on (Oct. 20),” IEC Chairman Gula Jan Abdul Badi Sayad told a news conference.
