Taliban Rejects Afghan Government's Call for Taking Part in Election

16 Apr 2018 The Killid Group

Taliban rejected Afghan President Ashraf Ghani's call for the group to take part in the upcoming parliamentary and district council elections.

In a statement issued by the group on Sunday night, they reiterated their stance that Afghanistan is an occupied country.

This comes after Ghani on Saturday officially launched the voter registration process and signed up to vote in the upcoming elections.

Speaking at the event, Ghani reiterated the peace offer made in February to the Taliban and said they must end the war and register as a political group.

He also said the Taliban should prepare themselves to take part in the elections adding that elections were a means to end disagreements.

But the Taliban said in their statement that Afghanistan is occupied, with thousands of foreign troops in the country and that major political and military decisions are "taken by the occupiers".

"We have seen in past elections that people have been cheated and the final decision was taken by John Kerry (former US Secretary of State), and the National Unity Government was created at the US embassy in Kabul," the statement read.

The group also called on the people to boycott the elections.
