AAN's Borhan Osman quoted on the participation of youth in the presedential election in Afghanistan: "less educated young people in rural areas tend to be "politically inactive," while a growing number of more educated young people in conservative urban areas are flocking to Islamist groups that oppose democracy and elections and favor sharia-based forms of governance."
