Martine van Bijlert, co-director of an independent research group called the Afghanistan Analysts Network, said the days ahead would be key to determining if the Taliban failed to disrupt the vote or if they purposefully laid low on due to the heavy security measures. “There’s always the possibility that they decided to stage attacks before the elections, before the country went into maximum security mode, and after the elections,” she said.
