Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, 9 April 2014

Discussing the post-election role of outgoing President Hamed Karzai, "Kate Clark, a senior analyst at Afghanistan Analysts Network, an independent research organization in Kabul, says the three front-runners do not want to alienate Karzai. 'Hamid Karzai is by no means a lame duck president, even now,' she says. 'So, regardless of whether the contenders would actually like him playing a role in the next presidency should they win, they cannot risk being seen sidelining him.'"
