Officials admit electoral process is far from perfect as fake voting cards flood the country.

    Afghanistan faces several hurdles as it prepares for Saturday's parliamentary elections.

    Poll officials have admitted that the electoral process is far from perfect as fake voting cards circulate across the country.

    In addition, the Taliban has vowed to boycott the vote, threatening to blow up roads and attack election workers.
