1:04 pm
the country with the u.s. troops pledging to pull out of afghanistan by next summer many fear of the election show the country is far from stable and still plagued by corruption argues paul the slayer is in the afghan capital. by and large this was certainly not a successful day for afghan democracy there was an extremely ill voter turnout with some polling stations reporting that less than a quarter the number of people turned out today compared to the number of people casting their ballot last year during the presidential elections the first results will come in next week wednesday with the final tape tally been tabled at the end of october but these certainly will be elections associated with violence more than eleven people were killed throughout the course of the day more than a thousand polling stations where i'm able to open the doors particularly in far flung rural communities where the taliban has strong control we've also heard some of the electoral complaints commission and it says that what the course of the day
1:05 pm
it was seemed to numerous reports on irregularities some of the complaints were by people saying that they saw election officials accepting bribes some of the reports were about fake those who cards and also reports are the so-called indelible ink which was supposed to last more than four days and that was supposed to indicate that a person had voted and prevent them from voting a second time but we've heard many stories of people being able to wash off the sink in just a matter of minutes the afghan parliament is meant to be installed early next year but it is reports of a vote rigging in the coming weeks materializing in fact become larger and if many of the two hundred and forty nine candidates who take up seats in the parliament turn out to be the preferred candidates of president hamid karzai people here will feel even listened to see asked about the political process one of the main reasons for such a low turnout today was violence but the other reason was a lack of enthusiasm and support for an administration that many people feel is corrupt by and large people also feel that this is an administration backed by
1:06 pm
western governments that has not listened to the will of the people the karzai administration will be for that deal it gets revised by these reports of irregularities and violence it certainly seems as if they haven't been able to. stemmed the violence throughout the course of the day this will soon is being touted by many on this as a missed opportunity by kamikaze and his sponsors to actually win support from the afghan people and also to win support for the political process here in afghanistan and all his troops mean to leave this country by july of next year they said they will only do so if there is a security system in place that can ensure political stability and security would suit me based on what we saw today this does not seem to be the case. and afghanistan can only avoid becoming a failed state if it learns from past mistakes that the view of. an afghan opposition leader who is hamid karzai is main challenger in the two thousand and
1:07 pm
nine presidential election. as i had predicted before the presidential elections last year but that if if the same situation frontin you the situation can only to tell you that this is exactly what we are witness to in terms of governance issues of corruption rule of law and justice and security and as a whole so this is the these sort of sliding down all the the downward trend to lead to an absolute failure i list a list we look into the mistakes of the past we draw lessons from the mistakes of the past and we give the people of afghanistan back their sense of direction so this is stage the afghan leadership the administration led by mr karzai it in itself is a misled leadership and then as last sense of direction of the failures of the national government cannot be substituted with more troops from outside resources
1:08 pm
from outside more energy and more support from outside this is a situation that afghans are to start with and the international community is also stuck with. if afghanistan does fail to become a stable nation it will have serious consequences for other countries in the region that's according to matthew hoare hole rather head of the afghan study group i think it's in. every other nation's interest to see a negotiated settlement afghanistan it's been a proxy war or. a real war in one way or another for the last thirty thirty five years in afghanistan and it has improved nobody's economy as a proof nobody's way of life. i think for nations like the central asian states for russia for china to have issues with their own ethnic minorities or muslim minorities i think it's important for what's happening in afghanistan not to spread
1:09 pm
across boundaries. here with our live from moscow still to come this hour for you calls for a change in priorities in the last politics. but in an all time high in poverty of more than fifteen years these big names they're one of the leaders say what america needs to ban gay marriage to bring god how can. we hit the campaign trail for the u.s. midterm elections and discover what values some think are the most important in our economic times. also in the program find out what dangers lurking in the ball in the depths rather of the baltic sea that's coming up in just a few minutes. but all this court is due to decide whether to extradite one of russia's most wanted terror suspects commits a kind of was detained in warsaw on friday and later released russia is demanding his extradition in connection with atrocities in the north caucasus alexis is in
1:10 pm
the polish capital. i have left this building was district court late on friday night feeling almost like a free man it is hard to say whether he is a free man now as the court as you said is still to decide whether extradite to russia or anywhere else or not we heard comments from the officials working in this court that according to the country's legislation that's a kind of has a political refugee status in the u.k. this applies to the whole of the european union and that's why he had to be set free immediately i'd like to remind two of us that he was detained early on friday morning in the polish capital warsaw on charges that he is on the international wanted list by the interpol and that's why the polish authorities had to detain one of russia's most wanted terror suspects now many experts in poland have already been very surprised at the decision by this court saying that usually the fact that
1:11 pm
a person is on an international wanted least is more important than a rescue political refugee status and that's why it is still unclear what fate lies ahead of all in all physic used eleven criminal acts russia believes moscow believes that he led militant group in the northern caucasus which was involved in a lot of different crimes from brutal killings to kidnappings in the northern caucasus region also mosco believes that as a kind of was somehow involved in a terrorist attack in most infamous theater siege the north. in moscow which was one of the most painful pages in modern russian history. is definitely one of the most wanted man in russia he was granted political asylum in the u.k. in two thousand and three and ever since most school has been asking london to extradite but so far all attempts have been futile this detention in warsaw which
1:12 pm
happened on friday morning. is the closest moscow got so far to actually get things that drive back to russia for a trial but so far it is as i've said unclear whether he will be extradited to all the comments we've heard from the local politicians and authorities say that this decision will not be politicized that poland will act in full accordance with its own law and international legislation and we of course are waiting to hear any developments on the story and the future fate of our heads like i have one of the most wanted man in russia for well sergei's from commer sun newspaper told us why he thinks poland won't extradite to russia. i think that despite current approach men draw from poles for relations and despite russell strong pledge pledges to extradite him i don't think that we expect him to come back to russia i personally would be very surprised if he's extradited for simple reason that still this is
1:13 pm
a very politically charged issue and as you understand poorly shouldn't the room elite they also have the only mitigations they have all on domestic agenda and they can go to fry and so i see at this as a sort of get them out of game you seize all the north i think you would not go to russia they were conflicting reports some said that he was not informed that he might be arrested but i think the reason is that he simply understood that polish authorities had no guts just to arrest him and percent him to russia and in fact it was proved yes the do and polish prime minister said that russia should not go to fly in its expectations definitely i think this is. a moment of truth for our relations at a moment just to see how mature this relations are of course what he's facing this those are very serious accusations but definitely he would be intitled the best lawyers and the case would be fully transparent and it would come under close
1:14 pm
