The Independent Election Commission (IEC) on Sunday announced the first final results of the Wolesi Jirga elections from nine provinces.

IEC chief Abdul Baday Sayyad told a press conference here that the final Wolesi Jirga election results were from Urozgan, Laghman, Bamyan, Parwan, Jowzjan, Daikundi, Zabul, Samangan and Nimroz provinces.

He said the results of other provinces would be announced once the Independent Electoral Complaints Commission (IECC) finalized the list and shared it with the IEC.

Sayyad wished the winning candidates best of luck and asked the failing candidates not to act against the law and instead follow their demands through legal sources.
