Parliamentary elections are held in Afghanistan on Saturday, October 20, reports AFP.

The parliamentary elections in Afghanistan are taking place against the backdrop of threats from the Islamist Taliban movement. Earlier, Islamists said they would do everything to prevent the voting.

In the capital, Kabul, on the day of voting several explosions near the polling stations have already been reported.

The Ministry of the Interior reported that there were no wounded because people were in the premises.

Given the threat of Islamists, more than 50 thousand law enforcement officers are involved in the protection of order in five thousand polling stations.

In addition, some of the polling stations in the country opened late, others did not open at all. Voters and candidates have already received complaints about long lines to the polling stations, lack of voting ballots and problems with new devices for verifying voters.

The election commission of the country reported that in those polling stations where problems were observed, voters could also vote on Sunday, October 21.
