Top challenger of Afghan president says ready to quit elections for peaceAfghan President Ashraf Ghani’s main challenger in a election next month has said he is ready to abandon his bid for power for the sake of peace, raising more questions about prospects for an election the Taliban have vowed to block. The twice-delayed presidential election comes as the United States and the Taliban are trying to seal an agreement under which U.S. forces will withdraw in exchange for a Taliban security guarantee and a promise of power-sharing talks with Ghani’s government. The Taliban have denounced the election as a sham and vowed to attack rallies.
