Video Interview: Abdullah Abdullah

Afghan presidential candidate tells Al-Jazeera he is poised to be president.

    Officials in Afghanistan have told the presidential candidates to stop making predictions about the results.

    Hamid Karzai, the incumbent president, says he is confident he will win enough votes to avoid a second-round runoff.

    But his main rival Abdullah Abdullah, the former foreign minister, has told Al-Jazeera's James Bays that he feels he is in the lead.
