Afgan Election Results – Remember That Election

See AFGHANISTAN: Election results finalised

“Of the country's 12.5 million registered voters, some 6.8 million Afghans took part in the polls to elect a national legislature and 34 provincial councils for a five-year term.

Almost 5,800 candidates contested the poll, including over 2,700 for the 249-seat Wolesi Jirga and more than 3,000 for 420 seats in the provincial councils.

Afghanistan’s last parliamentary elections were held in 1969, before a coup in 1973 and the 1979-89 occupation by the Soviet Union.”
