Interview: Peter Galbraith

Former UN official, fired after criticising Afghan vote, speaks to Al Jazeera.

    Peter Galbraith, the former UN deputy special representative for Afghanistan, was fired from his job after he questioned the UN's handling of allegations of vote rigging in Afghanistan's elections.

    With Afghanistan now facing a run-off vote, after the country's election commission scrapped hundreds of thousands of fraudulent ballots, Galbraith spoke to Al Jazeera about the upcoming second round and whether it can be free and fair.
