AAN’s Thomas Ruttig is quoted on the forthcoming Afghan presidential election and possible Taleban violence:

AAN analyst Thomas Ruttig told AFP that with the election so near it was “difficult to speculate… there is very little time left for campaigning”.

The Taliban, he said, “have enough power to disrupt the vote”.
