" This is the fourth time since the beginning of recounting votes July 17 that audit process of votes cast in Afghan presidential elections has been suspended."
Kabul, Aug 2 - The auditing process of votes cast in Afghan presidential elections was once again postponed Saturday.

According to election commission officials, a fresh round of the audit was scheduled to resume at 7.00 a.m. Saturday, Xinhua reported.

However, the officials believe that the process would resume within the next 24 hours.

The electoral team of presidential candidate Abdullah Abdullah did not attend the audit process on Saturday.

A statement released by Abdullah's team pointed out that their observers won't attend the audit process until negotiations with the UN and concerned parties are concluded.

This is the fourth time since the beginning of recounting votes July 17 that audit process of votes cast in Afghan presidential elections has been suspended.

Meantime, Nilab Mubariz, a spokesperson for UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) has expressed concern over delay in vote auditing, saying that any further suspension would damage the interests of those who voted in the presidential polls.
