Two quotes from AAN’s Kate Clark here:

“The timetable is still crucial and it’s not just that Afghanistan is in limbo at the moment,” says Kate Clark from the Afghanistan Analysts Network, an independent think tank. (…)

As Clark points out, Afghanistan “can’t reach a new military agreement with the US without a new president. That means the country hasn’t got all time of the world to get a new leader. At the same time, cleaning up the vote, getting an audit and consensus will probably take time. Afghanistan needs a leader with legitimacy from the ballot.”
