Presidential elections will be held in Afghanistan on April 5, 2014

Presidential elections will be held in Afghanistan on April 5, 2014. Incumbent president Hamid Karzai will not be eligible to run in the elections due to term limits. A total of 27 candidates were confirmed to have been running for office. However, on October 22, Afghanistan’s Independent Election Commission disqualified 16 of the candidates, leaving only 11 in the race. Opinion polls show Dr Abdullah Abdullah and Dr Ashraf Ghani as the front-runners. Afghanistan’s April 5 election is the third presidential poll since the fall of the Taliban.
