Final Day of Voting Held for Loya Jirga - 2002-06-05


Afghans have held their final day of voting for delegates to the traditional assembly of tribal leaders -- the Loya Jirga -- that will select a new national government beginning next week.

U-N observers said the majority of voting was peaceful today (Wednesday). However, in some districts there were reports of attempted vote-buying and intimidation.

The Loya Jirga will meet from June 10th until June 16th.

Afghan officials said the 14-hundred and 50 Loya Jirga members have been taken from a broad range of the Afghan population, including refugees, cultural and academic organizations, and religious minorities.
