Ethnic groups in northern Afghanistan vie for role in politics as election nears.



    As Afghanistan prepares to go to the polls, three major ethnic groups in the north of the country - the Tajiks, the Uzbeks and the Hazara - are vying for a key role in local and national politics.

    Each group is looking for the candidate who is likely to bolster their status by granting them more privileges and powers.
