Afghans prepare for free elections
"Afghanistan's new electoral commission has had its first formal engagement, as the country begins the process of preparing for elections that are due next year.
The six members of the commission met the United Nations special envoy for Afghanistan, Lakhdar Brahimi, and attended a meeting of donor countries' representatives.
The members of this new, interim electoral commission were named only a week ago.
The commission now faces the daunting task of registering millions of potential voters in a land where free elections have never been held.
Think about it, a country that has known war and tribal problems for so many years is now preparing for it's first elections. There will still be problems to overcome and dangers to face, there always are at a birth. But it will be a wonderous thing to see.
(I know, it's good news I posted so I will be called a Bush lover by the resident cave dwellers.
Bring it on.)
I'd actually prefer that the above type of posting () be kept to a minium. I just wanted to show the perps how stupid they looked when they did it.
