“Afghanistan does not have a viable judiciary”

“The key thing is that regardless of the outcome of the presidential election in Afghanistan, there are going to be complaints,” argued Lawrence Korb, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress.

“Because if Karzai wins big, then they will say that he stuffed the ballot boxes; if he wins by just a little bit, then people will point out isolated instances of corruption;” Korb said. “I have no doubt there is going to be protest after this is over. The real problem is that Afghanistan does not have a viable judiciary to decide these things.”
