In this article, AAN’s Fabrizio Foschini widens the perspective of the still unresolved post-election audit stalemate:

“If we can agree that delays, stalemates and obstructionism have been a recurrent theme of this electoral process, it does seem possible that this pattern extends to the political negotiations that will accompany the creation of a new government, whoever the winning candidate will be,” he said.

“And if that happens, it could be a bad year for all Afghans.”
