Reporting the merger of the presidential campaigns of Zalmai Rassul and Qayyum Karzai, in favour of the former, the news agency quotes AAN's Kate Clark as saying:

“I do see this as a sign that Rassoul is Karzai’s preferred choice,” Kate Clark, of the Afghan [sic] Analysts Network, told AFP.

“Karzai has been very keen publicly to say he has not been supporting anyone, but Karzai loyalists have been backing Rassoul.”
