Prolonged election process slows down business activity: Afghan economic experts

afghanistan dry fruitsAfghan economic pundits have expressed concerns at the prolonged process of the elections that have slowed down business activity.

Uncertainty about Afghanistan’s future had been a major factor behind the decline in economic growth; it only heightened further upon the start of the election process.

“Businessmen do not invest money because of the elections,” Tolo News quotes Kabul resident Azizullah.

Investors and businessmen are holding back activities until a new president is named and the election process is completed. However, the nation’s economic woes will continue, as the election is heading to the second round.

Analysts fear devastating consequences on the national economy, if credibility, transparency and outcomes of the elections are not honored.
