New date for the announcement of preliminary results from September 28 presidential poll will likely to be set tomorrow (Monday), the Independent Election Commission said on Sunday.

The results were originally due to be announced on Saturday, but the commission failed to do so, citing technical problems and efforts for transparency.

Rahima Zarifi, a member of IEC, said that delay in the announcement of preliminary results would be for few days.

The commission said that a new date for the announcement of results would be set tomorrow (Monday.).

Meanwhile, some electoral teams emphasized that the delay should pave way for transparency.

Others like Gulbuddin Hekmatyar criticized the delay saying it would pave way for fraud.
