An Afghan electoral official says the audit and recount of all 8 million votes in Afghanistan’s disputed presidential election is complete.

Noor Muhammad Noor, a spokesman for the Independent Election Commission, said on September 5 that within 24 hours, the commission would send the results to the complaints body, which will then have 48 hours to review the results and file complaints.

The final result is expected to be announced early next week.

The UN-supervised audit was launched after candidate Abdullah Abdullah rejected the initial results of a June 14 runoff, alleging massive fraud.

The preliminary results put Abdullah’s rival, Ashraf Ghani, well ahead in the vote.

Under a U.S.-brokered deal to defuse tensions, Abdullah and Ghani pledged to accept the audit results and form a national unity government.
