AAN’s Ali Adili is quoted here in the Dubai-based daily on expected voter turnout in the forthcoming Afghan presidential election:

“If we look at last year’s parliamentary elections, the majority of registered voters – almost two thirds – didn’t turn up,” said Ali Yawar Adili, an election expert working with the Afghanistan Analysts Network. “With the Taliban already stating that they plan to attack polling stations, and with their additional threats to cut off electricity, we have reason to believe that this year’s turnout could be even lower.”
