Afghans ambivalent about prospects of Nov. 7 runoff election

Given the widespread fraud and low turnout during the first round of voting, Afghans wonder if the second round on November 7 will be a repeat of the fraud.

Commentators continue to debate whether the Karzai administration was complicit in the fraud and whether Hamid Karzai could ever be considered the legitimate Afghan leader. Some are even contemplating the prospect of a power-sharing arrangement between Karzai and Abdullah Abdullah.
