IWPR, 2 April 2014

"In one district of Afghanistan where a popular public uprising succeeded in ejecting the Taleban, people have thrown themselves wholeheartedly into preparations for the upcoming elections.

The last time elections were held in Andar district in the southern province of Ghazni, just three ballots were cast.

But the long lines of people waiting to receive their voting cards ahead of the April 5 polls serve as an indication of how attitudes have changed since a home-grown militia helped drive the insurgents out."
